Each day, students receive an average of four movement breaks (approximately 4 minutes each), one guided meditation (3-6 minutes), and five breathing exercises. Students may also choose to take a 3-minute mindfulness break in the Peace Corner as needed.
Teachers notice overall that students show improvements in:
Behavior, concentration/focus, positive mindset, readiness to learn, peer relationships, dealing with stress/anxiety, respect for self, others, and school.
Students with poor emotional-coping respond positively to mindfulness techniques. They have shown less anger and improved self-awareness and regulation skills.
