Mindfulness in Schools, Ireland
We promote well-being and positive mental health in schools. Mindfulness has been shown to improve attention, focus, and concentration, as well as reduce stress and anxiety.
Mindfulness means paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment in the mind, body, and external environment, with an attitude of curiosity and kindness, and without judgment. We discover different aspects of mindfulness: awareness of breathing, body, sensations, emotions, thoughts, and senses: listening, tasting, seeing, speaking, moving, touching.

Investing in Children's Mental Health and Well-being
Teaching mindfulness to children is like planting seeds in the ground and looking after them to help them grow. It is not the FIX ALL solution but rather a long-term skills development that with time and practice has a chance to become a strongly rooted base for becoming a happy and confident adult who deals well with stress and challenges, is capable of forming strong and healthy relationships, and also develops emotional intelligence and self-regulation skills.
