It’s well-known that practising mindfulness regularly can benefit, in this case, our students. It’s great help when focusing and concentrating on studies,they learn easy techniques to help control anxiety in any situation, it reduces stress, it improves self-esteem, and it helps to improve sleep and energy levels.
– Every day of that week, we did mindfulness the very first minutes of every session.
– A external person came to school to carry out the session.
