“Mindfulness has helped me be more awareness of my surroundings and make me feel safe.”

 

“It’s made me look at my family members and better analyze what emotions they are feeling and gives me an opportunity to know how to respond to them.”

 

“If I feel like I’m going to cry, I just do deep breathing and it usually helps.”

 

“The main thing I learned is that mindfulness isn’t just putting your emotions to the side, it’s noticing them and making yourself aware of them.”

 

“Mindfulness has helped with my stress, especially with tests and assignments.”

 

I taught some of these things to my mom.  She is always complaining about how stressful her day is at work…She told me she noticed it helps relieve stress.”
