Start the Day with a Ready Mind!
Age: Year 5 – Year 8 Students
Start the day with a ready mind! This group will explore mindfulness and how it can be used if children feel worried or anxious, or are having trouble sleeping.

Themes explored and strategies include:
- Mindful breathing
- Mindful listening
- Body relaxation
- Tuning in
- Mindful movement
- Kindness to self and others
- Gratefulness and gratitude
Goals are set for the group based on the individuals that are attending. Individual goals are also set to address within the group context. Your occupational therapist will speak to you about this process.
