The VSS team have had a great introductory session on Mindfulness from Alison Mathers, Educational Psychologist. There is a lot of research on the benefits of being mindful – for us as individuals as well as others around us. It was interesting to hear of the link between mindfulness and emotional resilience.
For more information, we can recommend the resources from the Goldie Hawn Foundation “Mindup”
Alison led us in a short mindfulness session. We found even a few minutes could make a difference.
The app “Breathe” was recommended by one of our pupils. There are lots of activities to try out, and stickers for every experience. Why not download it for free and give it a try? Visit their website for more information – www.stopbreathethink.org
