Mindful Movement and Stillness

Published

on

Mindful Movement and Stillness

Encourage students to contemplate the concept of “mindful” and its significance. Define “mindful” as the practice of being fully present in the current moment, emphasizing awareness of one’s surroundings. Prompt students to speculate on the meaning of “mindful movement.”

Engage students in a discussion regarding the combination of “mindful” and “movement.” Encourage them to deduce that if mindfulness involves present-focused attention and movement pertains to physical motion or locomotion, then “mindful movement” likely involves purposeful, attentive actions.

Introduce the term “stillness” to the class and inquire if they are familiar with it. Clarify that “stillness” denotes a state of being motionless or maintaining physical tranquility. Transition the discussion to the idea that today’s lesson will encompass both mindful movement and cultivating stillness.

Learning Objectives

This lesson aims to facilitate a deeper understanding among students regarding the interconnectedness of their emotions, thoughts, and bodily sensations. By exploring the practices of moving mindfully and cultivating stillness, students will discover effective strategies for regulating their emotions.

Throughout this lesson, students will engage in activities designed to promote mindfulness in movement and discern the distinctions between mindful walking and the state of stillness. Through experiential learning, they will grasp how these practices can influence their emotional well-being positively.
