We are bringing into the classroom
We donate 10% of our net profits to schools around the country to introduce the Mindful Minute to young children. By bringing mindfulness into the classroom we are helping to teach kids how to utilize their entire brain in their learning, functioning & decision making. Learning mindfulness and being present at a young age will resonate with a child and embed those principals in their day to day life as they get older. This simple shift will nurture a kinder, compassionate and more present, successful adult and in turn; society.
“Currently, the majority of our focus in schools is academics. There is not a consistent focus on social/emotional learning where mind, body, and spirit are incorporated into a child’s school experience, which is neglecting a big part of who we are as human beings. By teaching kids mindfulness we are giving them another tool for optimal learning and success in life, that’s what we should be doing as educators.” -Cheri Overstreet MA-Educational Psychology, Durango, CO
The way this is accomplished is integrating the Mindful Minute “Brain Breaks” in the classroom. This curriculum is designed to reset the body and the mind allowing it to refocus their learning. This is done through purposeful body movements and breathing exercises which help integrate both hemispheres of the brain.
