According to a recent article in Child Trends - A growing body of research suggests that mindfulness interventions in schools can boost children’s ability to regulate emotions and manage their feelings of stress. Educators. and school staff looking for interventions to help students manage stress may want to consider mindfulness programs. These programs, which don’t require any special equipment, can also be relatively inexpensive to implement; school staff can often be trained to become facilitators. Additionally, mindfulness programs have the potential to reach many students at once, whether through small group activities in a “mindful moments” room, classroom activities, or breathing exercises conducted over a PA system.
