“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf” (John Kabat-Zinn)

For teachers

Stress and burnout among teachers is a major concern for schools worldwide, affecting the quality of education and leding to increased costs in recruiting and sustaining teachers. Research shows that teachers who practice mindfulness improve their ability to stay calm and focused, they handle stressful situations better and improve classroom organization - the calmer and more focused the teacher, the calmer and more focused the children become as well. 

Mindfulness Malta offer mindfulness training to teachers who would like to:

  • Learn mindfulness for themselves
  • Teach mindfulness to children and teens

The courses will be tailored to suit the needs of the particular school or teacher group.

For children and adolescents

The school offers a unique platform for introducing and teaching essential life skills to children and teens. Mindfulness is such as skill. Over the last decades research on mindfulness shows how children and teens can learn to stay calmer and more focused while at school and at home, become more compassionate towards themselves and other children, and improve chool performance. 

Mindfulness helps children and teens:

  • Become more attentive
  • Focus better in class and while doing homework
  • Facilitate learning
  • Improve emotion regulation
  • Create a positive environment

For university students

In low levels, stress can help us concentrate better and utilize our cognitive resources optimally. But when stress goes beyond a certain threshold, it has the opposite effect. It interrupts with our concentration and memory, our sleep, emotions, energy levels and social life. Knowing how to regulate your stress levels is therefore an essential skill for academic success. Mindfulness teaches you this skill.
