"The first blue bead stands for “breathe.” The second, red, cues her to reflect on her "thoughts",
yellow makes her consider "emotions" etc.. Reminders to “take a mindful breath, and to be a little more stable.”

"Students practised breathing, “body scans”, and learned to “surf the wave” of difficult emotions,
like anger or anxiety, "

“Tai-Chi: There are 415 kids in a gym,” says principal Hugh Blackman, “and you can hear a pin drop.”

"You have to start with teachers,”  [and the parents and most notably
YOURSELF!]

"The 'Mind-Up' program is Mindfulness training to teachers, including classroom “brain-breaks” 3 times daily."

"The response was overwhelmingly positive... "

"Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto concluded that, when it comes to warding off
a relapse into major depression, mindfulness is as effective as medication.."

"A 2013 paper found that 10- and 11-year-olds, who participated in an eight-week program were better
able to ignore distractions.  Another found that 12-to-16-year-old students had fewer symptoms of
stress and depression."

Naqvi finds in times of stress it helps her understand “it’s okay, everyone feels the same way.
Taking a deep breath makes you feel more confident, and ready for what you’re about to do.”
