Mindfulness is being aware and accepting things/ situations as they are without any judgement. It means to be rooted in the present and be actively involved in what is happening to yourself and others NOW.
The students explored this concept of being in the present through guided meditation and with an activity to imagine themselves with a superpower and then to explore what they would do with such a superpower. This activity motivates them to work better in the present and also develops their creativity.
We explored the benefits of being mindful – it helps develop awareness and focus, improves physical health, and helps us manage our emotions. Also, we discussed how we can incorporate mindfulness in our day-to-day activities – paying attention to what we are doing, being kind and gentle to ourselves and others, not being hard on ourselves when we make a mistake, etc. During our discussion, we also explored mindful usage of Social Media.
