|A feeling of peacefulness is evident when we are relaxed and happy|
Our heart beat is slow and steady.
Mindfulness is about being aware of how you are affected by things that you experience. The way we respond to these events is felt in our head as feelings e.g. happiness, sadness, fear etc, but because our body and mind are connected, our feelings stretch out from our mind and reach into our body. Weird, eh?
There will be a school wide focus on Pause, Breathe, Smile. These mindfulness techniques will be taught to increase calmness; to improve focus and attention; to enhance self-awareness; help develop conflict resolution skills and to increase general wellbeing.
|In order to develop an understanding of how our body and mind is connected, we looked at how our body reacts when it is under stress.|
