I’ve been encouraging my students to continue to practice mindfulness over the summer. Even a minute a day can make a big difference in improving focus, building empathy and increasing overall happiness. There are lots of great apps out there including Calm, Smiling Mind, Mind Yeti and Headspace. Or look on the Peace of Mind website for videos that I have made for the kids.
I’d like to put together a photo collage of Lafayette students practicing mindfulness out in the world. Snap a picture of your child practicing mindfulness in the car, on a plane, in the Galapagos, or in Spain and email me at .
And of course, the best way to encourage your child to practice mindfulness over the summer is to try it yourself! I hope you have a safe and peaceful summer!
