As a K-12 school teacher I quickly realized my role was more than teaching the curriculum. My students were stressed and anxious trying to manage their emotions, but unable to do so. They were struggling with building healthy relationships, self-regulating their behavior and emotions, depression, insomnia and many kids in my classroom were unable to focus, concentrate or even sit still. Teachers and parents were also struggling. I wanted to do something. I wanted to help. So, I developed It Starts With You, an online classroom session specifically for students and teachers.
During It Starts With You, I teach a variety of mindfulness techniques to manage stress, better cope with change and life’s challenges, improve focus and for self-regulation. The goal being, to practice these techniques to develop behaviors that contribute to the well-being of self and others throughout our life. It starts with you joining us, our Global beKIND Mindfulness Movement of over 25 000 kids, teens and adults as we begin Day 1 of the beKIND Mindfulness Challenge. The beKIND Mindfulness Challenge gives everyone the opportunity to demonstrate KINDness, respect and caring for self and others in hopes we can all lead healthier lives physically, emotionally, mentally and socially.
