Mindfulness in the classroom and beyond
Research shows mindfulness can help us cope with stress and anxiety, feelings that many of us, including adolescents, are struggling with since the pandemic. We discuss how school- based mindfulness programs can get kids started, and options to further develop the practice. And we describe ways to ensure the practice of mindfulness doesn’t reinforce patterns of exclusion.
