Event Details

Our energy and mood can shift hourly, daily and weekly.

What are some things we can do to keep energized, focused, motivated, and present in our classrooms? How do we garner genuine enthusiasm to show up each day being our best and encourage our students to be their best? Committing to wellness habits and mindful movement could create the outcome of more days feeling truly good and answering the common questions, “How are you doing?” and “How are you feeling?” with an honest and heartfelt response of, “I’m doing well, thank you for asking.”

Learning Goals:

  • State the variety of mindfulness and wellness actions that can be done to maintain and improve physical, mental, and emotional health for students and teachers.
  • Describe the purpose of creating a mindful classroom culture that practices wellness habits regularly.
  • Synthesize wellness habits and mindful movement authentically into the daily school schedule.
  • Generate, with our students, plans to be well now and into the future.
