Yes! I am asking you to play a computer game for your homework. However, I want you to think very carefully about why I am asking you to play it, what you are learning about when you play it and how it is relevant to things we are thinking about at the moment. Make a detailed comment to share your ideas.


What does “mindfulness” look like in your lives?

November 21, 2011 27 comments

Yoga, meditation and other exercise that involve concentration can help you to become more mindful people.

D0 some research online about the meaning of “mindful”. Then, think carefully about your lives and the choices you make every day. If you are becoming more of a mindful person as we do more yoga and meditation, how should you be changing?

Think about…

  • Your behaviour
  • The way you speak
  • How you work and play
  • Your relationships with other kids
  • How you feel
  • Your relationships with adults
  • The things you want or need
