Mindfulness, yoga at MB help get your attention back where it belongs

By Matt Glendinning, Head of SchoolPeaceGarden

Do you ever worry that the prevalence of digital devices and social media is eroding children’s ability to focus and concentrate?  With good reason.  This blog post from Mind/Shift highlights some of the drawbacks of being plugged in all the time, and quotes well-known psychologist Daniel Goleman, who advocates for more attention to mindfulness in school curricula.

Quaker schools have a built-in advantage here, where weekly Meeting for Worship encourages quiet reflection, pause and introspection.  And if that’s not enough, visit our meditation labyrinth in the Grove, or on Tuesday or Thursdays join our faculty/staff mindfulness meditation group at 7:30 am (school psychologist Jessica Stewart’s office), or yoga sessions led by Anni Barnard right after school (Sinclair Room).
