Watch: One-Minute Mindfulness Strategy
Not everyone can retreat to a cave in the Himalayas to find their center. In their research, The Mindful School Leader authors Valerie Brown and Kirsten Olson found that most educators are overwhelmed and often don't take the time for self-care. This quick, 30–60 second breathing strategy demonstrates an easy way to incorporate mindfulness and repose throughout a busy day. Try incorporating this exercise in the morning, before you open e-mail or when you first sit down to your desk; in the afternoon, at the beginning of a lunch break or planning period; and in the evening, as you close out your school work for the day.
