Mindfulness means paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment in the mind, body and external environment, with an attitude of curiosity and kindness. It is typically cultivated by a range of simple meditation practices, which aim to bring a greater awareness of thinking, feeling and behaviour patterns, and to develop the capacity to manage these with greater skill and compassion. This is found to lead to an expansion of choice and capacity in how to meet and respond to life’s challenges, and therefore live with greater wellbeing, mental clarity and care for yourself and others. (source Mindful Nation MAPPG  2015).

Promising results are emerging from early research around the benefits for Children and Young People indicating:

  2. Improved focus and therefore academic achievement

  3. Improved social skills

  4. Improved relationships

  5. Improved attendance and motivation

  6. Increased kindness and compassion

  7. Improved mental health and wellbeing

  8. Better physical health

A large review of studies involving close to 3,000 people found that mindfulness meditation was linked with a reduction in feelings of depression, anxiety, and even physical pain.
