It can take less than a minute to cue our minds to relax and focus. A short breathing exercise helps students quiet their minds, focus their attention and get ready to learn.
Teaching students to focus on and control their breathing can help them become less reactive and more reflective when feeling anxious or stressed. The more controlled breathing is practised, the more self-managed and mindful students can become.
“MindUP is for all children, it’s not just for calming but supports focus and nurtures a positive attitude towards learning and life.”
The introduction of a Brain Break and MindUP areas in class have had a positive impact on pupils' self-regulation and the climate for learning in the classroom.
Children are able to calm themselves down before assessments and are therefore making better progress.
