Schools in
changing times

The world is changing rapidly and these interconnected global changes are affecting the Indian society at every level. We are compelled to adapt to newer ways to think about our environment and ourselves, both as individuals and organizations.

Children today need to cope with

  • 1. High pressure for academic results and success
  • 2. New kinds of behavioral issues and problems
  • 3. Reduced motivation to study
  • 4. Inappropriate relationships – exploitative, peer pressure, bullying, aggression
  • 5. Limited ability of teachers to effect overall development of children due to the issues above

Mindfulness

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally. Quite simply, Mindfulness is the art of bringing attention to our thoughts, feelings and actions as they arise from moment to moment. Mindful awareness helps children to develop concentration and self-awareness. It is proven by research that brain training involving Mindfulness practices can strengthen areas of the brain responsible for attention, emotional control and problem solving. In practice, these benefits can be obtained by regular brief sessions of structured Mindfulness practice 2 to 3 times a day.
