What Is Guided Meditation?
Did you know that mindfulness has been proven to reduce stress, and that practicing mindfulness can significantly improve both mental and physical health? This handy printable guided meditation script can do just that for your students!
In an age where childhood anxiety is the highest it has ever been, it is vital that we teach our students how to achieve a state of mental calm. One strategy that can be used to achieve this outcome is guided meditation.
Guided meditation is an activity that involves a leader (in this case, the teacher) talking a group of participants (the students) through a mindfulness activity, such as mindful breathing. The leader provides guidance on how to complete the medication and helps the students notice physical and mental reactions as the activity unfolds.
