~Mindful Awareness and Emotional Learning for Kids~

Mind Your Business   4 Week workshop for the community and the classroom empowers young people by teaching them they have the ability to control their emotional & mental wellness. Students are faced with all sorts of challenges & pressures these days that can lead to feelings of anxiousness, sadness, frustration & isolation. Childhood stressors can cause kids to become so agitated that they may find it difficult to express themselves, focus on schoolwork, and properly socialize with peers at times. And with all of the hard work they do, classroom teachers really have their hands full. Teacher's jobs are busy enough without having to meet the social/emotional needs of their students on top of everything else they do. That is exactly why Mind Your Business workshop was created. We introduce mindful awareness as a method to help students cope with overwhelming emotions and social issues. Mindfulness and meditation are excellent tools to help children develop self awareness and initiate their own emotional self learning.

Research shows that mindfulness and meditation have been proven to effectively help children:

Manage and control anxiety

Increase attention and focus

Improve social-emotional development

Feel happier and more relaxed

Boost Working Memory

Improve concentration

Reduce hyperactive behavior

Resolve emotions

Cope with stress

Build positive relationships
