MINDFULNESS AND MINDFUL EDUCATION
Mindfulness can be defined as "the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment.” (John Kabat-Zinn) Mindfulness allows us to live a more balanced lifestyle by managing emotions and stressors in our lives. The benefits of mindfulness have been enjoyed by professional athletes, successful business leaders, and the everyday individual looking for a more stress-free and connected life experience.
At Hopkins Education Services we deliver functional mindfulness as related to education and learning. With a mindful approach to learning, you develop a growth mindset and resiliency to overcome academic challenges.
Benefits of mindfulness education include:
relief from depressed feelings
enhanced athletic performance
better focus at school
development of compassion and increased self-confidence
