Mindfulness and meditation support learning and concentration. They help both children and adults to manage mood and stress levels and to develop emotional resilience and empathy. Practising mindfulness can positively influence how well we do in exams, performances and sport. Learning to become more mindful allows us to make better choices in each moment, choosing to respond rather than react and can contribute to a more friendly and focused atmosphere in school.
