ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Designed to give children the skills of mindfulness, to live in the present moment instead of squandering the precious seconds of their lives as they worry about the future and regret the past. It is also a key learning resource for face to face mindfulness sessions.

The weight of evidence from recent studies* concludes that:

Mindfulness for young people is easy to carry out, fits into a wide range of contexts, is enjoyed by both students and teachers, and does no harm.

Well conducted mindfulness interventions can improve the mental, emotional, social and physical health and wellbeing of young people who take part. It has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, reactivity and bad behaviour, improve sleep and self-­esteem, and bring about greater calmness, relaxation, the ability to manage behaviour and emotions, self-­awareness and empathy.

Mindfulness can contribute directly to the development of cognitive and performance skills and executive function. It can help young people pay greater attention, be more focused, think in more innovative ways, use existing knowledge more effectively, improve working memory, and enhance planning, problem solving, and reasoning skills.

The studies also show that adolescents who are mindful, either through their character or through learning, tend to experience greater well-being, and that being more mindful tends to accompany more positive emotion, greater popularity and having more friends, and less negative emotion and anxiety. Mindfulness is therefore likely to have beneficial effects on the emotional wellbeing, mental health, ability to learn and the physical health of school students.
Such interventions have an impact fairly quickly, and are enjoyable and civilising, for pupils and staff.
