Mindfulness teaches students strategies for developing emotional awareness,focus and concentration, self-control, and stress-management. Mindfulness has been demonstrated to improve executive function, increase empathy and understanding of others, and foster the development of natural conflict resolution skills.
"Students are told to pay attention a thousand times in school, but rarely are they taught how. We tell our kids to be nice to each other again and again without ever teaching them the incredibly accessible exercises that cultivate empathy and forgiveness." - Daniel Rechtschaffen
