Dear Educators and Families,
During this very difficult time, please know that our goal is to support you as you help students continue their learning at home.
Our partners at Inner Explorer have developed a daily mindfulness app for families, called 'I AM PRESENT', which is an extension of the program used in more than 30,000 classrooms, including at Meadowlawn Middle School
You can download the app at no cost, thanks to the generosity of several foundations including LG Electronics and the Allstate Foundation.
Students (and families) are encouraged to participate in the Inner Explorer practices every day, through the app to:
· Reduce Stress: Guided breathing and relaxation exercises are easy to do and replace fight or flight responses with calm.
· Boost Immune System: Regular practice enhances health and wellbeing (even improves sleep quality).
· Improve Learning: With many students working online and at-home, daily use helps kids focus on learning.
· Foster Resiliency: Teaches children tools to handle challenges with greater clarity and confidence, skills that will last a lifetime.
Inner Explorer's 5-10 minute audio-guided program (in English and Spanish) is easy to use and most effective when practiced regularly.
Remember: Daily mindfulness practice is to Brain Health
what daily teeth-brushing is to Dental Health.
The app will help kids and families practice at home to create calm and focus during these challenging times. Register for the free app today:
