Mindfulness is the key that opens the door to self-understanding and allows us to pay attention to what is happening at each moment, becoming aware of our internal experiences (thoughts, emotions, and body sensations), as well as our external world (environment, people, and information). Practicing Mindfulness increases awareness of the present moment, enhances observation, reducing automatic or impulsive responses, thus lowering stress and anxiety.
Mindfulness helps to cultivate kindness and compassion towards ourselves and to others.

As teachers, Mindfulness is an outstanding tool to help your students cultivate being present; presence of mind, presents of heart, and presence in the body; qualities we don’t usually cultivate intentionally. Inner calm and mindfulness are necessary in order to improve children’s performance, and as teachers, to be able to teach well. Why not start training these capacities at an early age?
