Feeling a certain amount of concern or worry is natural when we encounter difficult or unsettling times. Practising mindfulness at times like these can help to rewire the brain to work in calmer and more positive ways. To get you started, we've pulled together the below resources, which will introduce mindfulness techniques that you can practice at school or at home and are suitable for teachers, parents and young people.
Please remember, if you're feeling overwhelmed with difficult thoughts, to always talk to someone. If you're a student, talking to your family/parent/guardian or your close friends can help. If you're undertaking any therapy currently, always check in with them first before doing any of the practices suggested below.
