Mindfulness for Adolescents in School

Mindfulness in School, for adolescents from 12 to 19 years old

An 8-week program to help adolescents reduce anxiety and stress, handle difficult emotions, increase ability to focus and concentrate.

This program is specifically designed for adolescents (G7 to G12), using relevant real-life examples so that they can connect with the learning and implement it into their daily lives.

What we do in each session

Except the 1st class where I introduce the program, each session is set as follows:

  1. Ring the chime and 1 to 2 min of mindful breathing
  2. I introduce what we’ll learn in that session, including some questions for them to answer
  3. Practice time
  4. Time to share what they noticed
  5. Questions (if any)
  6. Conclusion of what we just learned
  7. Invite them to practice for next session, in a different setting than the classroom
  8. Ring the chime + 3 mindful breaths

At the end of the class, they will be invited to think a bit deeper on the session or why we practice mindfulness – they will do this with the teacher at their own pace. A document with reflection questions will be provided for this purpose.

What teens say:

It helped me in situations where I was going to basically "pull everyone down", then I relaxed, then I breathed and then I thought about my (anchor) point ... and then I apply it at home.

Mindfulness helped me a lot to not stress as much especially when I had tests and quizzes on the same day, so it helped me relax. I used to do it a bit before but since we started the program I have done it a bit more at home and with my family.

I enjoyed doing these sessions of mindfulness. I often find myself, even at home, just breathe sometimes when I'm frustrated or sad.
