Larson STRONG Activity: “Mindfulness” -- Parent Connect #2
The second Larson STRONG activity took place earlier today and focused on the concept of mindfulness, which is a focus on the present moment, paying particular attention to our feelings, thoughts, and body. It is a movement away from outward stressors or future events. This is an important skill to develop, and certainly one that many adults find challenging to master. Teachers and students investigated how mindfulness can combat stressful or anxious feelings. We learned that taking even a small amount of time to breathe deeply and intentionally can reduce these feelings and bring about a greater sense of calm.
Below are some questions you can discuss with your student tonight if you wish:
