Thursday afternoons are "Thoughtful Thursdays" at The Cr3ative Space where the focus is on helping teens develop mindfulness skills to assist with relieving stress, managing emotions, building self-esteem, relaxation and resilience.

Put simply, mindfulness is a way of training yourself to pay attention in a specific way to what is happening right now. It is about observing your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and environment, without judgment.

Research has shown that mindfulness training for children improved attention, memory and decision making abilities. Self-awareness, social awareness, self-confidence and resilience were proven to increase, as well as the ability to self-regulate emotions such as fear and anger (kidsmatter.edu.au).

This program incorporates a variety of mindfulness strategies including breathing techniques, visualisation, using the senses and mindful art.
