Hello there! This worksheet is designed just for you, to help you explore and practice mindfulness. Whether you’re dealing with school, friends, or just everyday stress, mindfulness can be a great tool to help you feel more relaxed, focused, and happy. Let’s dive into what mindfulness is, its benefits for you, and some exercises you can try out.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is all about paying attention to what’s happening right now, in a kind and non-judgmental way. It means noticing your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the world around you. It’s like training your brain to be more aware and present, helping you enjoy life a bit more and get through the tough times with a little more ease.

  • Improves Mood: Can make you feel happier and more positive.
  • Enhances Self-Awareness: Helps you understand yourself better.
  • Builds Resilience: Gives you tools to cope with challenges.

Purpose: To relax your body and notice any sensations or tension.

How to Do It:
