Mindfulness is a big part of how we set ourselves up for a great day at school. In the mornings (especially) we like to start our day the way we hope to finish it....
Mindfulness helps us to be present. It promotes positive health.
In Tautoru we have been taking some time to listen and tune in to what our bodies are saying.
We have been doing some breathing exercises that enable us to focus on how our bodies are feeling and where our thoughts are.
As we breathe in and out we let go of any feelings of worry, nervousness, agitation or stress. We just let them go.
Instead we think of how light our mind and bodies are and how that makes us feel.
We begin to think about what's coming up next and how we would like to feel about our day at school.
Spending this time tuning in to ourselves and our feelings is a part of the day that we really enjoy.
We'd love to see you at our Parent Workshop on Wellbeing and Positive Education next week - Tuesday 22nd August, 6.45pm. It will be a chance to find out what we do at school to promote positive wellbeing and health and why it's so important to us.
