What teachers are saying...

“My mindset now is completely different, I have learnt that a worry is a worry and that it will pass.”

“I use MindUP™ a lot in my own personal life, I take a moment for myself at the end of the school day and this really helps.”

The children ask for their brain breaks, they are definitely more focused.  They show more active listening and are better at remembering. They have developed a more positive mindset and are less anxious.”

 “MindUP™ is for all children, its not just for calming but supports focus and supports a positive attitude towards learning and life.”

 “Children who have difficulty controlling their anger are beginning to use mindful breathing independently and sometimes without reminders.”

 “When Frankie was upset I couldn’t get him to try breathing, so we went to the school garden he started to calm and focus on a yellow flower being visited by a bee. He was then calm enough to do some mindful breathing with me.”
