Author: Deborah Schoeber Lein
Mindfulness has gone mainstream, and author Deborah Schoeberlein pioneers its practical application in education. By showing teachers how to tune into what's happening, inside and around them, she offers fresh, straightforward approaches to training attention and generating caring both in and outside of the classroom. Mindful Teaching and Teaching Mindfulness emphasizes how the teacher's personal familiarity with mindfulness plants the seed for an education infused with attention, awareness, kindness, empathy, compassion, and gratitude. The book follows a teacher from morning to night on a typical school day, at home, during the commute, and before, during, and after class. This book is perfect for teachers of all kinds: schoolteachers, religious educators, coaches, parents-anyone who teaches anything.
OCD is a mental disorder that causes people to have compulsions to do things repeatedly, such as washing their hands or checking to make sure that the door is locked. While some who have never experienced OCD may think of is as annoying or simply paranoia, it is actually harmful and, in extreme cases, can lead to suicide. At the core of many cases of OCD is intense anxiety. This anxiety may be connected to a past traumatic event, ongoing stress, or even a genetic predisposition. The anxiety tends to be persistent and ongoing, with the person suffering rarely getting a break. One of the best treatments for anxiety disorders, including OCD, is mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of constantly being aware of your own inner world and your environment in such a way that you are able to accept what is going on without being judgmental. Practicing mindfulness can actually alleviate some of the symptoms of OCD, helping people suffering from it get their lives back. This book will give you 10 different ways that you can practice mindfulness, with particular information as to how each of these different ways can benefit people with OCD. This book is very easy to follow. It will guide you through practices such as deep breathing, meditation, journaling, being conscious of your surroundings, and slowing down a lifestyle that may actually be fueling anxiety. It includes self-reflective questions that will help you become more aware of your own anxiety, how it contributes to your OCD, and what practical steps you can take. Best of luck to you as you seek to become more mindful and start to overcome your OCD. ---------- Tags: Free From Ocd Obsessive Compulsive Disorder With Overcoming Mindfulness Guide workbook Stress Meditation Peace Happiness Anxiety mindfulness mindfulness for beginners mindfulness journal mindfulness in plain english mindfulness books ocd ocd books ocd workbook for teens ocd workbook for adults ocd books for adults ocd books for teens ocd books christian ocd books for parents mindfulness meditation mindfulness exercises mindfulness based stress reduction mindfulness book ocd treatment mindfulness
In recent decades, education at all levels has been seriously impoverished by a growing obsession with standards, targets, skills and competences. According to this model, only a circumscribed range of basic cognitive skills and competences are the business of education, whose main role is to provide employability credentials for people competing for jobs in the global economy. The result is a one-dimensional, economistic and bleakly utilitarian conception of the educational task. In Mindfulness and Learning: Celebrating the Affective Dimension of Education, Terry Hyland advances the thesis that education stands in need of a rejuvenation of its affective function – the impact it has on the emotional, social, moral and personal development of learners. Drawing on the Buddhist conception of mindfulness, he advances a powerful argument for redressing this imbalance by enhancing the affective domain of learning. Mindfulness and Learning: Celebrating the Affective Dimension of Education shows how the concept and practice of ‘mindfulness’ – non-judgmental, present moment awareness and experience – can enrich learning at all levels. Mindfulness thus contributes to the enhanced achievement of general educational goals, and helps remedy the gross deficiency of the affective/emotional aspects of contemporary theory and practice. The author outlines a mindfulness-based affective education (MBAE) programme and shows how it might be introduced into educational provision from the early years to adult education with a view to harmonising the cognitive-affective balance across the system.

Easy, Creative Two-Minute Mindful Journal to Help You Live Mindfully, Stay in the Present, and Become More Content with Daily Life; 6X9 Inch and Colourful Terracotta Cover
Author: Monday Journals
Welcome to my Mindful Journaling, the easiest way to become more mindful and present in your daily life. Through trial and error, I discovered the easiest way to become more mindful. You don't have to constantly remind yourself to stay in the present, and you don't have to force yourself to think only positive thoughts. No. All you have to do is create. When you are busy doing something, your mind has to coordinate movements, while you're thinking of the next step to take. The more you enjoy the activity, the more immersed you become in it. As a result, there is no space to have negative thoughts, or to worry about the past/ future. With that in mind, this journal is designed to be very simple and extremely quick to use. There are 366 daily spreads, and every day you record: - your mood at the start of the day - what you did to feel alive and how you felt afterwards - what you did that was creative and how you felt afterwards - mood at the end of the day All in all it will only take 2 minutes to complete. Should these activities stir up any creative ideas, there are a few lined pages at the end of the journal for that. After a while, you will begin to see some patterns. Perhaps you will begin to see changes in your mood at the start/ end of the day. You will begin to see which activities help you the most in becoming more mindful. Do you or anyone in your life struggle with depression, anxiety, negative thinking, absent mindedness, or irritability? Perhaps this journal can help. You've got nothing to lose, give it a shot today! The journal also makes a great gift for anyone looking to improve their life. Life is unpredictable and creativity is always beneficial.

When you think of mindfulness you probably imagine sitting cross-legged on a cushion on the floor, eyes closed, focused on your breathing, and humming a soft om to yourself. Meditation may be about being in the present moment, but journaling can also be a powerful form of mindfulness where you use your noticing skills to explore the world around you. In this book are 30 daily prompts that help you explore the world around you, including: Journaling about your community Journaling about your neighborhood and home Journaling about how you interact with the people in your life You live in an amazing world.

You'll be journaling about your community, your neighborhood, your home, and even yourself and your family. DAILY PROMPTS - Each day's prompt is accompanied by a single page with college-ruled lines so you can write directly in the book. However, if you wish to journal more than just one page, you're encouraged to use an additional blank notebook for long-form journaling.

SIZE & SPECS - 30 Days of Journaling is portable and is the perfect companion for your Bullet Journal® notebook or planner. At 5" x 8" it is slightly larger than a standard A5 journal and with just under 100 pages, it's slim and won't take up much room in your bag. PAPER CHOICE - I've also chosen cream paper to help reduce ghosting and show-through when writing your reviews and taking notes. I've done pen tests for this paper and all normal pens work great with no bleed-through and only minimal ghosting. Choose a gel pen, colored pencils, or a ballpoint pen for best results.
