Description

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about paying attention to whatever you are experiencing in the present moment. It could be what you are seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, smelling, thinking and feeling. Mindfulness practice is also about accepting our experience without judging or labelling it, i.e., without thinking that the experience is “good” or “bad” / “right” or “wrong”. For example, if we apply mindfulness on times when we fall down on our knees, we can mindfully attend to the sharp sensation on our knees instead of thinking about how "unlucky" we are or how "bad" this experience is.

How is Mindfulness helpful for children /adolescent?

There are several studies that shows positive psychological benefits for children and adolescents. A review of some of the studies found that children and adolescents who practised mindfulness regularly have the following benefits:

  • better attention

  • more calm

  • improved sleep

  • better coping with anger

  • less anxiety symptoms
