Day 5 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is Social Emotional Learning, Interacting with Others, and Positive Psychology: More Mindfulness and how Teachers and Parents Can Help.

The online international Mindful Kids Peace Summit was created by teen, Adam Avin, for other teens, to be shown in schools across the world as part of the annual curriculum. It focuses on mental health & stopping violence. 50+ experts speak about diversity, inclusion, communication, kindness, anti bullying, peace, mindfulness, positivity, social emotional learning, emotional intelligence, coping with stress, coping with emotions, coping with trauma, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-compassion, positive psychology, interaction with others, & so much more.

I got to speak with Dr. Rick Hanson today. He has written lots of books about mindfulness, and is really smart. I think that teachers should also watch this one for sure.

“As research shows, when you focus on #SEL, academics improve as well.”

“Focus your career on the center of 3 circles. What do you love doing, what are you talented at, & what do you care about? Life is an incredible opportunity. Make the most of it.”
