3 Minute breathing space

This short mindfulness recording is for staff and students that would benefit from regular breaks in the day to help them to sit and just reset themselves before moving on. This recording is longer than 3 minutes, but once you have mastered the routine then 3 minutes should be the maximum. Try in the car before you step into the car park, help students to download onto phone and encourage to listen at break time.

Loving Kindness for others - meditation

Loving Kindness for others - meditation

This is to develop resilience toward people that you like and help you work on those that you don't like. Over time it helps to relax the minds attitude towards people you think are enemies or people you believe you do not like. We first talk about how we feel if we have to be with people we do not like. We realise that we can train the mind to deal with these people in more relaxed ways. Meditation helps with this and over time we can open up to difficult people.

This is a key practice to do at the very beginning of learning how to be more mindful. This helps to generate feelings of kindness to others and self. Many of us are not kind enough and this is a gentle way of teaching the mind. It gently teaches the mind to be less critical and judgmental about ourselves.

Support of sound

Learn to sit and rest without distraction. Then use sound when you are distracted to return to the moment. Excellent way to train mind for exams and homework. Teaching the mind to be able to hear instead of listen, helps us to let go of external noise distraction. We can allow them just to be there.

Mindfulness in the classroom for the start and end of the day

Mindfulness in the classroom for the start and end of the day

These two recordings are created for you to play at the start and the end of the day. They are mindfulness based guided short practices of no more than 5 minutes in length. Designed to quiet the mind mind before class start and them to calm the mind before going home. I would recommend trying this for a whole term with a class, just so you can compare with other classes. Then the whole school could be taking a little time out to benefit the rest of a busy day. Enjoy You can then complement these recording with others that I have created. You can use these again as a full class resource of just for those learners that get a little anxious and worried about stuff.

General Anxiety Disorder questionnaire

General Anxiety Disorder questionnaire

Use this with each individual in class to show the levels of self perceived anxiety with each student. This is useful for just getting to know your students but especially useful in tracking any progress made with mindfulness classes. If any students show severe score than I recommend that you speak to someone at school who deals with emotional issues and to ensure that colleagues are aware. Each column has a score attached - 0, 1, 2, 3. When the students tick a box, they or you can assign an score and then total them up.
