Thank you so much for your wonderful advice @Emily_May, and thanks to everyone for being here. It's been a very useful session! 

 

Another good app is Stop, Breathe & Think.

Re: Wednesday Wrap The Third!! What is Mindfullness?

 Ok, I'm going to attempt a wrap-up and then hand it to @Emily_May

 

We started with the wonderful words:

Mindfulness is such an incredible way of connecting more to what matters, rather than being swept away by thoughts and emotions and applies so well to building relationships with teenagers. I'm looking forward to sharing some insights with you. 

 

We talked about how parenting is largely modelling the behaviour we both want to be and see. That lengthy explanations of mindfulness won't get them as close to understanding as just living it in front of them.

 

We learnt that being without judging, staying in the moment and not getting swept away by the tide of feeling are all ways of being mindful.

 

We also learnt that no matter how big the issue, what our young people really need is us, present, calm and loving. 

 

We got some great tips for follow up reading and a beautiful metaphor of being on the calm ocean floor watching the waves crash above.

 

How's that?
