What is Mindfulness?

Put all your attention, without judging and reaction, to thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations.

According to Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (1990), Mindfulness is a form of non-judgmental and non-reactive attention to experiences occurring in the present moment, including bodily sensations, cognitions, emotions, and urges, as well as environmental stimuli such as sights, sounds, and scents.

Practicing Mindfulness is a scientifically proven way to improve:

  • Attention and focus

  • Cognitive functions

  • Emotional awareness

  • Emotional regulation

  • Empathy & Interpersonal relationship

  • Impulse control

  • Physical health

  • Resilience

  • Self-awareness

  • Stress reduction

  • Wellbeing (overall)

According to neuroscience research, practicing Mindfulness can alter our brain structure, so that our brain functions can be enhanced!

However, it may be a great challenge for parents and teachers leading Mindfulness practices to children, and MindfulKids® aims to provide a solution!
