In order to equip students with self-regulation, mindfulness, and tools to better focus their attention and energy, educators must model. This session will help participants consider a framework to help students better navigate the implications of social media, perfectionism, and societal pressures that can impact their sense of self. The presenter will introduce mindful strategies for the educator to incorporate in their own lives and classroom. Participants will experience activities and learn strategies on how to incorporate positive psychology, gratitude, and intentional goal-setting.
