    Write a brief letter to a friend who knows nothing about Mindfulness describing:
    1. What Mindfulness means to you
    2. How you have used Mindfulness in your daily life
    3. How it feels to be Mindful
  • 22. “I think that mindfulness is very important. I believe that mindfull means to be in the present moment. I have used mindfulness in my life before tests or big events. I take 3 big breaths and all my worries seem to leave me. I think that mindfulness seems to make me a lot calmer.”
  • 23. “I have learned that it’s okay to make your own choices and not copy other people. And that taking 3 deep breaths can be useful in a lot of ways like when you are sad, nervous and unkind. You can calm down when you are angry by taking 3 deep breaths. I have also learned that if you get yourself into a habit it’s like falling into a hole. And you can get out of that hole by choosing not to do it. Mindfulness helps you to choose not to do it.”
  • 24. “I have learned that all feelings are okay. And you can ask your feelings what they need from you. Sometimes you have a voice on one shoulder. That is the Heckler. Never listen to him. Listen to your Cheerleader.”
  • 25. “Mindfullness has been really good for me because my parents divorced and fight allot and I can get really streased by it because I get stuck in the middle of it. Now I feel really happy and work through things differently.”
  • 26. “When I’m thinking unhelpful thoughts I choose to let them go. In class when I’m day dreaming I choose to focus on whoeversspeeking. When I’m about to do something that I know I shouldn’t I catch myself.”
  • 27. “I have been doing this program called mindfullness and what it means to me is something speacil like a spark or something. In mindfulness is wear you get to relax and I have been using this at bedtime doing pebbel breathing. It feels very speacil to me to be mindful.”
