The Benefits of Mindfulness in the Classroom
Mindfulness is often described as the awareness that arises through intentionally attending to one’s moment-to-moment experience in a nonjudgmental and accepting way. It brings awareness to a person’s relationship to their experiences: thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Derived from the Buddhist contemplative tradition, mindfulness has gained popularity throughout the United States in recent years. Mindfulness has successfully been used within clinical settings to treat patients with Anxiety and Depression, as well as other mental health and psychological disorders. Studies have shown it to be effective in reducing stress hormones. Participants are asked to attend to the present moment in an intentional, nonjudgmental matter. Mindfulness encourages one to embrace the present moment with curiousness, openness and acceptance. It is important to avoid multi-tasking and focus on one experience in a non-reactive manner. Mindful thinking is not about being right, but instead encourages the participant to respond in an appropriate, deliberate way based upon the situation.
