As a school leader, your profession is the reason for all others. You fuel the future by equipping students to achieve their wildest dreams. Yet working in education can be quite demanding. Between the multiple needs of students, endless grading, and evaluations (not to mention lunch duty!), you have your work cut out for you.
Thankfully, mindfulness is a powerful tool that empowers educators, administrators, parents, and students to navigate their stress. Mindfulness is the process of redirecting attention to the present and responding with curiosity and compassion. Over 25 years of scientific research shows that this technique boosts the immune system, lowers anxiety, and saves time – all while making practitioners happier.
