A mindful approach to school

Going back to school can be stressful for parents and children as each adjusts to new routines and new surroundings. Professor of psychiatry Matthew Woolley says that mindfulness, a practice of focusing in the moment, can help. In particular, he recommends talking about students’ value-based intentions for the year and taking time to visualize successful behaviors and actions.
