Mindfulness for Pupils

young children meditating

 

Junior School

When you practise your mindfulness at home:

  • remember to find a place where you can be comfortable- a comfy chair or your bed
  • choose a place where you can be quiet, and where there aren’t a lot of other things to distract you
  • most of the time it’s best to sit upright and relaxed, like a tree or a mountain
  • sometimes you can also lie down flat on the floor or your bed, if you want to relax more

When you practise your mindfulness at home:

  • remember to find a place where you can be comfortable- a comfy chair or your bed
  • choose a place where you can be quiet, and where there aren’t a lot of other things to distract you
  • most of the time its best to sit upright and relaxed, like a mountain, with a straight back, but not too tense
  • sometimes you can also lie down flat on the floor or your bed, if you want to do the body scan or progressive muscle relaxation lying down
