What was taught in Guidance Lessons (May 18 - May 22)

Mindfulness & Social Emotional Learning @ Home

Benefits of Mindfulness:

  • Improves self-regulation in children.
  • Helps to reduce anxiety symptoms in kids with anxiety.
  • Helps them to better understand, express, and navigate their emotions, improving overall emotional wellbeing.
  • Enhance children’s abilities to focus and to concentrate.

Children exposed to mindfulness practice have been found to show greater empathy, enhanced social skills, and decreased peer-rated aggression.

Mindfulness boosts self-esteem and self-compassion.

Mindfulness meditation promotes a healthy brain, boosting cognitive control, memory, and cognitive flexibility.

GoNoodle has tons of videos on how to practice fun mindfulness strategies!
