(8-Week Mindfulness for Health & Happiness Course)

"This course is great for Busy people who need to slow down! Also people who are interested in learning and developing their personal and communication skills.

Before the course I found my head was constantly spinning with the things I had to do. By the end I noticed that my mind was much calmer and I was taking things more in my stride. I would recommend this course to busy, frantic people, because it’s a great way of learning how to understand and slow down your mind.

I enjoyed the general learning, the facilitators and interacting with the other delegates. Apart from learning to slow down, another surprising benefit is that it’s improved my posture!"

How Mindfulness Helps Students Deal with Daily Stress

As time goes by, mindfulness in its many forms has become more than just a wellness fad. At work, business executives are introducing meditation to compensate for the stress experienced while on the job. Other institutions, like the police and armed forces are also starting to introduce it to help people become more resilient in highly stressful work situations.

Now many schools have started to include mindfulness in their timetable so that children can benefit too.  Here in UK, some schools are now teaching mindfulness techniques to their pupils. At Mindfulness Mavericks, we think teaching young people to learn this time tested wellness practice is a priceless gift that we wish we’d learned at an earlier age.

A few early results include teenagers becoming less anxious both at school and socially. At home, there are reports that they even become less argumentative with their parents! We do hope that mindfulness in schools becomes the norm. Why postpone the prospect of giving our young people valuable mental skills that can serve them for life?

Check the article from The Sun about how two students were using mindfulness techniques to deal with stress both from home and school.

IF your child tells you to stop shouting, pause and just “be”, try not to be too alarmed. More than 4,000 UK teachers are now qualified in classroom mindfulness. Headmaster Shaun Fenton has long been an advocate. Each tutor at his school, Reigate Grammar in Surrey, is trained to help children focus on their breathing.
