Be Present with Mindful Movement
A great way to cultivate awareness, focus, and attention in the present is movement. Mindful movement can decrease stress and anxiety, and increase calm, relaxation, and happiness -- helping create conditions for learning. Coordinating one's breath with these simple stretches is a great activity to do before diving into academic content, or when students need a brain break to integrate their new learning. This is also a great activity to practise outside.
