|Anxiety levels have increased and learning practical solutions for decreasing anxiety results in happier, healthier children. Mindfulness is a great tool to use in classrooms to do this by pausing, recognising surroundings and bringing everyone into the present moment.|
In this week’s episode Katie White, Embodied Wellness Practitioner, joins Dale to discuss making mindfulness fun. It doesn’t have to be complicated and Katie takes us through:
– the benefits of mindfulness
– how mindfulness doesn’t always need to be about sitting still and focusing on the breath, how it can – be incorporated in play, games and creativity
– moving beyond words and into embodiment
– cultivating your own playful nature, so you feel confident when playfully supporting children
Listen to find out how you can integrate fun mindfulness activities in your classroom.
