Try Mindfulness

Listen to the Mindfulness exercise (Earrann 5a/b). This is an opportunity for you to relax and take a breather from the day to day stresses of life. You can listen to the exercise as often as you want to. It might be useful to make it part of your daily routine; at the beginning of each lesson, on the school bus, or when you go to bed at night. Your teacher will be able to give you information on where you can access more mindful meditation exercises like this.
