MindUP is grounded in neuroscience, activated by mindful awareness, inspired by positive psychology and is a catalyst for social emotional learning.
MindUP is composed of a framework of 15 lessons. Students learn about their brain, how to self regulate their behaviour and mindfully engage in focused concentration required for academic success.
MindUP aims to build resilience, reduce stress and anxiety. As children develop an understanding of the brain science linking emotions, thoughts and behaviours, they apply this knowledge and understanding to managing their own emotions and behaviour. They develop greater empathy for others and are more optimistic and happy.
