The Power of Mindfulness!

Classroom counseling lessons focused on learning about the “upstairs brain” and the “downstairs brain”. The students learned about the different functions of those areas of the brain; what can trigger people into their “downstairs brains”; what happens psychologically and physiologically when people are in either brain; and how to use mindful breathing techniques to re-engage the “upstairs brain.” Ask your child to share what they learned with you!
