Recently I have been very privileged and had an amazing time, going into 3 schools to show them hwo to meditate and pratcice mindfulness to help with stress and anxiety ……..
Three groups of students at Strood Academy, Longfield Academy and The Leigh UTC are participating in a six-week mindfulness trial designed to help with potential stresses leading up to examination season.
Facilitated by industry experts, Kerry Magdwick and Julie Murray, the first of three sessions took place on the 14th March.
Students were given an overview of how the brain works and the science behind stress before being taught a number of different techniques including meditation, deeper breathing and relaxation.
Students agreed to keep a daily log of their feelings and will meet up again three weeks after their initial session to cover other topics such as mindful eating. Read more ………
“I really enjoyed meeting all the students and staff and hope that everyone enjoyed attending the workshops as much as we enjoyed delivering them. It is exciting to share such simple techniques that can make a massive difference and that students can take away and use for the rest of their lives to help them feel calm and confident in any situation. Looking forward to the next workshops and hearing about everyone’s experiences with meditation and mindfulness.”
