What is Mindfulness?

Join Katarina Gleisberg of the Empowered Minds Club of Lewis & Clark's Trailblazers After-School Academy for Lesson 1: What is Mindfulness? What is it not? We appreciate comments and questions! "Have you ever…?" --said something you wish you could take back? --done something that you later regretted? --felt angry and out of control? --felt nervous or anxious about an exam or performance? --been in a bad mood but not sure why? --been in a bad mood but not even sure what emotion it is? --felt like you need a break and want everyone to just leave you alone? --had trouble falling asleep because your mind won’t be quiet or your body feels restless? --been accidentally spacing out in class when the teacher calls on you? --noticed that you do much better at sports or music or a hobby when you are really focused? This lesson's reflection questions are: --Were you aware of any body sensations today? --Were you aware of any emotions today? --Were you aware of any distractions today?
