Larry's Learning Outcomes
Learning mindfulness techniques can give children many social, emotional and cognitive benefits. It has been proven that children who engage in mindfulness activities cope better with stress. They are able to engage more fully with themselves and with the world. It can help children to focus and become less anxious. Children learn to pause and respond to situations rather than to react. They have a better understanding of how their brain works and an increased sense of curiosity about the world. Research shows that when mindfulness is practiced, it has a positive impact on both mental health and wellbeing.
Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas
Is your child having a particularly stressful moment, this could be due to difficult homework or an upset at home. Give them a brain break! Just take 3-5 minutes to focus, be present and clear their minds. Taking a moment of quiet can really help to just be calm and peaceful and remember the things that really matter in life.
