I recently had the honor of speaking to a group of 8th-grade students about Breathing and Mindfulness. I was nervous, I was told they had spent some time with meditation and mindfulness before, but I had no idea what to expect.
I was thrilled to discover these kids were practicing meditation and mindfulness in class every week – even during distance learning this year. So instead of talking about the basics of what is mindfulness we played with breathing exercises, talked about finding your calm center fast, and how mindfulness can be a superpower to make you more confident, focused, and in control in every situation.
What a fantastic group of students, it was an honor!
