One Mind Mindfulness

Mindful activities for school children in the classroom

One Mind is dedicated to promoting the power of mindfulness in the classroom, giving children the tools to navigate school and their personal world with confidence, balance, and emotional ease.

What is Mindfulness?

Sensory overload is all too real and, with the normalisation of social media, school children are bombarded with increasing emotional distractions every minute.

 

By intentionally stepping back and observing our wandering and impulsive minds with a quality of kindness and curiosity, mindfulness practice can help us to create a harmonious relationship with our thoughts and feelings. And it all starts with our breath...

Core benefits of mindfulness meditation

1blue_edited.png

Social & Emotional skills

Meditation brings our attention to our emotions. Children who practice meditation can better identify and regulate their thoughts & feelings, allowing them to stop & reflect before reacting impulsively to feelings of anger or sadness.

 

This can lead to improved relationships between children and teachers in schools and better classroom behaviour. 

Attention & Learning Skills     

Brain scans conducted on long term mindfulness practitioners have shown that meditation can improve the cognitive abilities of students, particularly in terms of concentration, working memory, critical thinking & metacognition

 

See the science page for more information on how mindfulness changes the brain.

Physical Health & Wellbeing

The academic environment can be stressful for teachers and students alike. However, by taking a moment to focus on your breath, mindfulness can ground you to the present moment, helping to ease your sense of stress.

The One Mind-fulness Mission

One Mind delivers mindfulness courses either through face to face workshops in schools local to Brighton & Hove, or via our online programme, available wherever you happen to teach.

Our mission is to spread a culture of mindfulness throughout primary schools across the UK - someday the globe!

Sure it's simple - but it's not easy!

Getting kids to sit still and pay attention to their interior world is tricky.

That's why we're here: to BUILD INTRIGUE about the brain and our minds! And to give you tools, resources and guidance to show your students the true superpowers of mindfulness.

We give you the tools!

Why mindfulness

is awesome:

Kids can practice anywhere!

We build intrigue and excitement around mindfulness, so that kids actually WANT to practice!

Once the children catch the 'mindfulness bug' they can do it anywhere, with or without video/audio. 

The format is simple and easy to follow, so once we have heard a practice a few times we can simply repeat the instructions to ourselves. 

All you will ever need is you, your brain and your wonderful self!

It benefits YOU, too

Research has shown that mindfulness also benefits teachers - YOU! - directly:

 

  • improving your own emotional intelligence through connection to 'self'

  • helping you to understand your students' perspective while

  • giving you the tools to be a more effective educator in the classroom.

"I felt compelled to say thank you because my colleague and I have been using your videos with great success.

 

Although I've heard of mindfulness, I had never really done it myself and I suppose I originally thought - gees, I've got to squeeze something else into the school day.

 

However, these videos have been clear, well-presented and manageable.

 

In the current climate, 'mindfulness' needs to be a priority in and beyond the classroom (more so now than ever).

 

It has been pleasing and hugely rewarding to see the benefits for the children (and myself!) first hand." 

 

Don't delay...
