How does mindfulness impact children in education based on evidence seen by educators?
Do educators believe a mindfulness-based curriculum is essential to modern education? Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations without judgement. Mindfulness has been implemented in the curriculum at Missoula Community School (MCS) and is used to help children ages three to six through social and behavioral development in their introduction to education. Educators at MSC believe a mindfulness based curriculum gives students tools to become more focused, more in tune with their emotional states, gives them new abilities to communicate, and tools to deal with the added pressure and stress placed on students today. It is believed this will help students be more prepared as they continue on with their education and life outside of school.
