Mindfulness for Students

Minding Your Mind’s mindfulness sessions for students are designed to introduce techniques and practices. Fundamentals can be learned in a small number of classroom lessons, while a more consistent practice can be cultivated through additional time and presentations. Practicing mindfulness on a daily basis can help students build emotional regulation, focus, and empathy.

Each classroom session includes a lesson in mindfulness, a short practice, and a sharing period. The length of time can be tailored to meet the needs of the school while taking into consideration the age of the students.

Two, 20-minute teacher sessions are built in at the beginning and end of each program series to support teachers in building and strengthening a culture of mindfulness in the classroom.

Sample mindfulness topics include:

  • description of mindfulness
  • mindful breathing
  • mindful listening
  • mindfulness of thoughts
  • mindfulness of emotions
  • awareness of body
  • mindful observation
  • send kind thoughts OUT or IN
  • gratitude
  • mindful eating
