Learn How Mindfulness is a Superpower
Mindfulness is a superpower. That’s the message from this short and sweet video, and I can attest that it is true. I have been practicing mindfulness daily for a year now and various forms of meditation for eight years. They have both helped me become less reactive, more patient, and better able to deal with life’s ups and downs.
And when I do mindfulness with students I notice two things especially: one, they are better able to focus; and two, over time they begin to become more aware of themselves and what is happening in their minds. That awareness is so valuable in helping them make decisions and handle challenges.
The easiest way to incorporate mindfulness and meditation into your routine right now is to find five minutes, either alone or as a family, to sit and breathe. Notice your breath and say to yourself “breathe in” as you breathe in and “breathe out” as you breathe out. If your mind wanders, bring it back to the breath. That’s all you have to do to get started. Enjoy the video!
