What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness means paying attention in the present moment to our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, or surrounding environment. For the sake of simplicity, we can define it as noticing what’s happening right now in an open, balanced and curious way. It also includes intentionally nurturing positive states of mind such as empathy and kindness.
Scientific studies find that mindfulness improves young people’s attention, emotion regulation, behavior in school, social skills, empathy, test anxiety and stress, among other benefits.
UWM will be using Mindfulness with our Resilient Richland project and is offering an introduction to community partners.
Charlie Seamans will be our trainer.
