  1. I haven’t tried doing a mindfulness session out of the class room. I just haven’t needed it outside of the classroom, yet.

  2. I’m pretty sure that mindfulness has carried over into my daily life. When working with my doctor, she also helped me to practice mindfulness throughout the day and to make sure that I stay within the present moment instead of dwelling too much on the past or future. Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed, I remember to focus on my breathing and to stay grounded instead of letting myself be swept up in my thoughts and feelings, which has helped me a lot. There are also plenty of times in which I could have used mindfulness but either I didn’t think to, or I was already too far gone that it wasn’t able to assist me in that moment. Nonetheless, mindfulness has become a useful tool in my life and has helped me to focus on the important things in my life.

  3. Mindfulness has helped me outside of class. When I’m overwhelmed with any type of emotion I take the time to recognize how I am feeling and for what reasons. If it’s a negative emotion, I look for ways to resolve the problem or distract myself so I don’t wallow in that negativity.

  4. Yes doing the mindfulness things in class helps out a lot outside of school because we all have our off days and we just need time to ourselves but when i am having a rough day i take 10 minuets to think and breath you know just relaxing. I like being a positive person because i like keeping certain people in a good mood and not putting them into a bad one like how i would be. When i take 10 minuets to think it is usually in school because i get stressed when we take tests. Just knowing we do this in class it is also very helpful so we could do it in life when things are very stressful.

  5. I think that practicing mindfulness has carried over to things in my daily life. Usually my mom and grandma get after me for going out with friends on the weekends and not really helping around the house. I usually get upset and we argue so recently I’ve been trying to stay home and help out a little and not go out as much. I figured if I be mindful about it and take what they said and actually listen instead of arguing it will make the house more peaceful.

  6. It has brought a sense of sanity into my typical chaotic teenage life. Especially when my mom and I get into confrontations with each other I remember our ‘mindful posture’ and take that position and try to remember to breathe. Because of our mindful minute it has helped me remember that my mom and I’s confrontations are only temporary. It’s easy to say that my brain can act as if it was “the end of the world”.

  7. I have not practiced mindfulness outside of class. I think its because I forget about it, like, forget I even have health class.

  8. It really hasn’t carried out because I just don’t have any moments that make me recall to the stuff I learn in health class. I knowledge on this topic has improved significantly though!

  9. practicing mindfulness in the classroom sort of carried over my outer parts of my body because it’s a relaxiation period of time and when does it happen it happens sometimes it happens when we do it in class and sometimes in the morning when i listening to one of the people i listen to every morning to help me go to the mindful stage.
