Positive Mindfulness

We are building a new innovative way of teaching by bringing respect and positive mindfulness to the classroom and beyond. The goal is to provide a safe and peaceful learning environment while reducing negativism,  stress and emotional anxiety. Teaching mindfulness as an intentional practice of self awareness when negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions surface and learning how to control those reactions through focus, calm breathing and awearness of the present moment. 

Positive mindfulness builds the skills of perceiving any situation with a accepting attitude and without judgement, which helps find a positive side in any situation. 

Teaching the skills of approaching negative news or stressful situation with a positive outlook, or, have the capability of looking beyond the crisis or set backs, rather than being consume by it, can help kid build a emotional and mental strength to cope with challenging life situations.  

Some positive mindfulness approaches are: 

  • Let go of thought of the past and future
  • Accept the present moment as it is 
  • Be aware of what you think and feel right now 
  • Don’t judge, the world isn’t white and black 
  • Live in the moment and pay attention to it 
  • Accept yourself and focus on your breathing 

Teaching those techniques at an early age helps children:

  • regulate their emotions
  • develop empathy
  • reduce intensity of stress
  • improve quality of sleep
  • balance brain activity related to mood
  • strengths self-esteem and self-confidence 

Positive Mindfulness helps kids learn how to control involuntary and constant thinking, remembering, planning, and other cognitive thoughts that trigger negative feelings of anxiety, worry, panic, guilt, fright, etc.

Multicultural awareness encourages the integration of various cultures and the mutual exchange of ideas and viewpoints. Multicultural awareness help kids gain global perspective and practice, make them become better citizens of the world, and develop cultural awareness and understand.

Educators Empowerment

Empowering teachers and educators to develop a holistic school culture.

Today’s academic pressure starts as early as kindergarten which takes away time to play, art, music, and downtime. 

According to the National Institute of Mental Health children today are facing an unprecedented amount of stress and anxiety, 25% of 13-18 years old will experience an anxiety disorder. 

High stress level at such an early age can impact memory, learning, behavior, and mental and physical health according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Stress will continue to elevate during middle and high school  years. A study conducted by Yale Center of Emotional Intelligence found students to feel stressed, negative emotions, fatigue and lack of interests 75% of the time. 

Educating and empowering our education to introduce positive mindfulness and school life balance principles in the life of our students could be a solution to the over stress students. 

We are partnering with schools and organizations so that we can provide free mindfulness classes and programs to teachers and educators. Empowering them with tools and knowledge that can help them develop and integrate positive mindfulness programs into the classroom.

Some of those educators programs may include:

  • Community of Practice
  • Workshops
  • Retreats
  • Courses
  • Mindfulness Fundamentals
  • Mindfulness in the Classroom 
  •  Self-compassion Course
