Mindfulness is a state of being consciously aware of the present moment, feelings, thoughts and bodily responses. Mindfulness practices have been linked to increased calmness, empathy, and decreased stress. Children and adults experience daily stressors that can become too intense over time without the proper techniques to manage that stress. This course looks at mindfulness practices that foster resilience, and can be used by adults and taught to children.
This course is appropriate for all early care and education professionals.
