Mindfulness in Middle School

(Ted Meissner) #1

Gisèle Bourgoin joins us to speak about how mindfulness is helping middle school students.

Remember being a kid, around seventh and eighth grade? What was that time like for you? It may have been carefree and filled with joy, or maybe it was challenging, or perhaps even difficult and sometimes overwhelming with all the changes in your life. Those stressors, however much we may look back on them now, are still stressors, perhaps the biggest experienced in life to that point. And today there is a new influence of greater distraction; how students meet that is being helped nowadays by the dedicated efforts of teachers, helping their students with mindfulness.
