Mindfulness can be defined as the use of paying attention in the immediate moment and doing it voluntarily and not judgment. Mindfulness meditation works refer to intentional acts of careful regulation by observing thoughts, emotions, and states of the body.
Typical full awareness activities include:
Mindful awareness without judgment of breath, body, feelings, emotions and/or thoughts (in practice sitting meditation or all day)

What can mindfulness do for students?
Stress reduction: Improved ability to handle stress
Increased focus: Improving the ability to pay attention, focus and concentrate
Improving the regulation of emotions: Reduced impulsivity, improved child behavior (rowdiness, suspensions, expulsions)
Increase emotional intelligence: Improved conflict resolution skills
Increased empathy and respect: empathy and understanding of others
Increased resilience: Increased capacity to overcome challenges
Improved physical well-being: Increased engagement in physical activity
Enhancing creativity and collaboration: enhanced expression of the creative arts.
Students will find it much easier to concentrate and to participate actively in the classroom. The class will benefit as a whole from a collective calm. These skills can also be applied to carefully navigate challenging interactions between peers or family.
Students will be less likely to bully others, and those students who are bullied will be more resilient.
