Mindfulness has been proven to reduce anxiety, encourage focus, and promote a sense of calm. Parents are invited to learn more about Mindfulness through an evening workshop. Several resources will be shared so that participants can begin practicing Mindfulness at home, at work, and with their families.
Lisa Ruzzi (Cynwyd School Counselor) and Natalie Thibauld (Cynwyd Librarian) have developed a mindfulness program for the district that is specifically designed for younger children. Incorporating movement and breathing exercises, these before and after school programs are highly popular in the district. Lisa and Natalie will explain how families can incorporate the practice at home to help their children, and themselves, deal with stress and anxiety.
