Description

Introduction to Wellbeing and Mindfulness for Schools and Teachers programme.

Preparing teachers to deliver an introductory session sharing the fundamentals of wellbeing and mindfulness in their schools

The costs of stress, depression and anxiety are increasingly evident in educational institutions. A 2018 survey found that one in four students said they feel stressed at the end of the day and find it hard to concentrate and over 50% of students have difficulty concentrating in class or on study because of day-to-day stress. Stress is contagious. Learner stress adds to teacher stress. A 2015 poll commissioned by the ASTI found that 60 per cent of secondary teachers said they were “feeling continuously stressed”.

Stress is the epidemic of the 21st Century. We are surrounded by weapons of mass distraction on a daily basis. The costs of stress have never been so high and the benefits of wellbeing to personal happiness and success have never been better understood. Wellbeing helps people be happy, healthy, focussed and at their best.

Our Introductory Wellbeing and Mindfulness for Schools and Teachers programme will prepare participants to:

1. Learn about stress and how to minimise unhealthy stress for yourself and others
2. Deal more effectively with stress in the classroom.
3. Understand the seven pillars of wellbeing
4. Learn how to boost personal wellbeing and feel good
5. Solve problems effectively
6. Improve focus and learn how to handle the weapons of mass distraction
7. Learn a range of relaxation, meditation and mindfulness practices to help you focus, destress, slow down, re-energise and feel great
8. Bring it all together - developing an action plan to reduce stress and boost wellbeing in your life

Participants will also learn how to deliver a 40 minute to one hour introductory wellbeing talk to staff, students and or parents to help them effectively manage and minimise stress and boost focus, achievement, happiness and wellbeing in their own lives. The programme will cover the challenges, opportunities and stresses most relevant to students, teachers and or parents. They will be given a session outline, plan and notes for the delivery of the introductory programme.

This programme is lead by Calodagh McCumiskey CEO, Spiritual Earth
