Everyday Mindfulness at Home

Welcome back to a very busy January at Earl Grey!  ​
As part of our School Development Plan, we have partnered with Briar Hill school and Anita Thomson from Insight Education to help support our schools Well Being for Learning Goal which focuses on lowering students anxiety when confronted with academic and social challenges.  Mindfulness was the focus of our first professional development session.  Thank you Anita for sharing this mindfulness strategy with our schools.
Everyday Mindfulness At Home 
At Earl Grey School, teachers have been learning more about mindfulness. Teachers who practice mindfulness, naturally bring those concepts to life in the classroom. Our goal is to build a culture of mindfulness with our students, giving them the tools to understand and manage anxiety through proven skills and healthy behaviours – starting at a young age.  
There are a lot of pressures in modern daily life. Parents and Caregivers are often stressed themselves; grownups need encouragement to find a moment or two throughout the day to check-in, slow down and act wisely.
Here’s a Mindful skill presented in an acronym to get you started. 
When you sense you are overwhelmed, frustrated or “tuned out” you can…STOP! 
S - Stop what you are doing (ie. take a physical step back, put your device down)T - Take a slow, deep breathO - Observe what’s happening, without judgement or assumptionsP - Proceed with kindness and curiosity
Taking a moment to use the STOP skill, can make a significant difference in your state of mind, and your interactions with others, especially your loved ones.
Children just need to know that you are genuinely interested in who they are, what they think and feel. Being able to fully concentrate on connectedness during your time together is invaluable.

Happy New Year!Matt Lowe​
