Mindful Learning

Reduce stress and improve brain performance for effective learning

by Craig Hassed, Richard Chambers

Mindfulness is increasingly being used in educational environments as a proven way to help students: learn more effectively; develop personally; enhance their physical and emotional health; and, deal with study and exam-related demands.

Written by two leading experts with many years of personal and clinical experience, Mindful Learning provides practical insights and exercises on how to apply mindfulness in any educational setting. The result is a book that clearly sets out how you can: manage stress; improve performance; enhance communication; develop more meaningful relationships; unlock creativity; improve mental flexibility and problem-solving ability; and, use technology wisely.

Whatever your age, whatever your learning environment, mindfulness can make a positive difference, and Mindful Learning shows you how.
