Mindful Moment

Being ‘mindful’ means being calmly aware of your body and mind by focusing on the moment. Mindfulness means to focus on ‘now’. Developing concentration, increasing focus attentions and listening skills and relaxation are parts of mindfulness. Mindfulness is not associated with religion.


Purpose and Benefits

Improving concentration and listening skills, refocusing the mind and encouraging relaxation to help support emotional health. See the Young Minds website, which also has details specifically about coronavirus advice and mental health support.


Achieving the Mindfulness minute star

Schools can achieve the Mindfulness minute star by introducing mindfulness to pupils on a very basic level, such as by encouraging them to use senses like touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. This could be done as a whole school before or after assembly or used as a class based approach to help refocus the class after or before an activity. It could also be useful after break or lunch period.
