Mindfulness for Teachers and Counselors
With a new school year approaching, teachers and counselors will once again be asked to wear many hats for our children. In this conversation, we will examine ways that mindfulness techniques can be used to help overcome the stress and anxiety that is all too common in the profession.
This program will be held at the Adolphine Fletcher Terry Library at 2015 Napa Valley Drive in Little Rock.
“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. The goal of mindfulness is to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional, and physical processes. Mindfulness is available to us in every moment, whether through meditations and body scans, or mindful moment practices like taking time to pause and breathe when the phone rings instead of rushing to answer it.” – Mindful.org
