I’ve been involved with a mindfulness study lately (for adults) and it got me to thinking about the possible benefits of teaching mindfulness to children. It takes a lot of practice to notice and recognize our physical sensations and also our mental/emotional sensations (thoughts and feelings) honestly and without ignoring or shutting them down or hiding from them by using distractions (i.e. not appropriately engaging with them or failing to appreciate them). Why not start practicing earlier in life?
I thought I’d share this project I came across: http://www.mindfulschools.org/
