I really enjoyed watching the videos on the Center for Resilience web-site. Hearing the kids talk about mindful breathing and other techniques they were using immediately reminded me to do some breathing and calm myself down which was helpful, partly because I've been so stressed because of the election. It looks like the organization has programs that help both adults and children to cultivate mindfulness practice techniques. It works with schools, businesses, and organizations in Rhode Island and provides training to staff, students, employees, and patients. I am interested in mindfulness myself. Although I don't always do them as much as I should, I have engaged in various mindfulness practices including yoga and meditation. I have gained a lot from these practices and believe children can as well. Mindfulness practices can help children to calm themselves down, get better sleep, and transition between activities. Many of the techniques are simple to learn and can enhance a person's ability to self regulate.
