Mindful : June 2019
Top of Mind English Schools Try Mindfulness More than 350 schools across England are taking par t in a study, launched by the UK government, that will see students and teachers learn- ing a variety of practices for emo- tional wellness, including mindful- ness, breathing exercises, and relaxation tech- niques, guided by experts. The two-year study will yield data on what works best in schools to suppor t young people’s mental well-being. Sensory- Friendly Shopping The sensory onslaught of large, busy stores deters many people with autism from buying groceries.

Sobeys workers report appreciat- ing the calmer mood as much as their customers. Executive Direc- tor of Autism NS Cynthia Carroll says it’s an excit- ing step toward allowing those with sensory process- ing challenges to move through their communities with greater ease and autonomy.

A pilot who’s diagnosed and does disclose it faces immediate grounding. Carl Eisen was in that exact predicament in 2007, when, in his midfor ties, his doctor prescribed him antide- pressants and recommended therapy. Eisen was grounded for a year, during which he discov- ered meditation. “I understood immediately that that’s what had been missing.” He meditated for 20 minutes a day, and after a month his “anxiety level was almost to zero.” More than a decade later, Eisen is now a certi- fied mindfulness teacher and runs Mindful Aviator, Keep up with the latest in the world of mindfulness.
