SEL this week was led by Julie Volm and Tracy Lentz. The focus of the class was “practicing mindfulness”. Practicing mindfulness means clearing your mind to only think about the present. Being mindful is a strategy that helps many people relax, get focused, and regain control of their emotions. There are several different ways to practice mindfulness. Tracy and Julie taught the children about Sensory Awareness mindfulness and Gratitude and Kindness mindfulness.
