The Mindfulness Project at Riverway Learning Community
Teaching mindfulness at Riverway allows children and adolescents to learn how to pay attention to what is going on in their lives as a whole. When young people have the skills to manage their emotional and physical experiences, they are empowered to make healthier choices for themselves. Because mindfulness strengthens our abilities to focus and concentrate on what we are doing moment-by-moment, distractions, daydreams, fears and anxieties tend to fade away much easier. As a result young people are able to pay attention more completely, learn more easily, and increase learning comprehension. Mindfulness practice also increases self-awareness and impulse control, which results in individuals being better prepared for their academic and social lives.
