Topic of the Month: Resources on Mindfulness
According to Wikipedia, is "the intentional, accepting and non-judgmental focus of one's attention on the emotions, thoughts and sensations occurring in the present moment". As the benefits of mindfulness practices for promoting health, reducing stress, and encouraging compassion among adults are both lauded by practitioners and documented by researchers, educators are seeking guidance for bringing mindfulness to young children in the early years of their learning journeys.
