Why Have A Peace Out Corner
In Your Room?

What Is Mindfulness?

▪ Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware


of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or
overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
▪ It suggests that the mind is fully attending to what’s happening,
to what you're doing, to the space your moving through.
▪ Mindfulness is right there to snap us back to where we are and
what were doing and feeling.

Mindfulness Can…

▪ Mindfulness can add to the quality of our lives in numerous


ways, from nurturing a sense of inner peace to improving the
quality of a workout, from enhancing self-confidence to
facilitating deeper and more meaningful relationships with
others.
▪ In children specifically, mindfulness has been found to:
▪ Mitigate the effects of bullying (Zhou, Liu, Niu, Sun, & Fan,
2016)
▪ Enhance focus in children with ADHD (Zhang et al., 2016)
