Student Instructions

Hello Thoughts - Audio Session

We all have many different kinds of Hubbubbles - thoughts, feelings, and sensations. We have thoughts floating in and floating away all the time. Today, we will take some time to notice our thought Hubbubbles and learn how to let them go. 1. ▶️ Click play on the Mind Yeti audio session. Follow along with the guided instructions. 2. 💭 Think: What were some of the thoughts you had while focusing in on your Hubbubbles? Were you able to make them float away? How did your body and mind feel once those thoughts left you? 3. Click Add Response. 4. Click the notepad to write down all the thoughts you had and what it was like to focus on the thoughts before helping them float away. 5. Click the mic to read your writing aloud and share about your thought Hubbubbles. 6. Click the green check to add to your journal. 👍 Anytime you have lots of thought Hubbubbles blowing around, try to focus in on them one at a time and see if you can watch them float away. You can do it! Family Why: Mindfulness helps children manage stress and work through it more quickly. Mindfulness practice—even a few minutes a day has health benefits. Research suggests that mindfulness can increase one’s ability to focus, calm down and connect positively with others.
