Hi everyone! How was your summer? Mine has been amazing because I could organize it so that I had time for different activities. One of those was to deep into an excellent technique for teachers and kids. Have you ever practised Mindfulness? That is
"to pay attention, on purpose, to the present moment" (Grossman, 2016). 
Some months ago I listened to a lecturer (Emma Reynolds) to talk about Mindfulness and the positive effects it has over our lives. From that moment, I tried to read some books about it and I learnt more over the summer. Once I have seen that we can obtain lots of benefits in our schools, I decided that one of my resolutions for this new school year would be to use this technique with my students. There are many ideas and activities in the internet but here you have an easy exercise to practise with kids, as an example.
