Mindfulness for Education
Introductory text to go here…;
The benefits of mindfulness for school staff have been well researched. See Professor Katherine Weare’s paper Evidence for Mindfulness: Impacts on the Wellbeing and Performance of School Staff.
In particular, reported benefits of mindfulness for school staff include:
a reduction in stress, burnout and anxiety
a reduction in the sense of task and time pressure
an improved ability to manage thoughts and behaviour
an increase in coping skills, motivation, planning and problem solving
an increase in self-compassion and self-care
If you are also interested in teaching mindfulness to your pupils, it is important that you first learn it for yourself.
