Interview with Amy Burke & Kevin Hawkins, #MKPS2019, Day 3

Day 3 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is Mindfulness Matters: Tools to De-stress and Cope with Emotions (including yoga, meditation, breathing, and positivity).

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 both Kevin Hawkins and Amy Burke of Mindwell Education at the same time. That was really fun because they showed me some different mindful practices, other than breathing, which I think is important for teens to learn.

“Young people should learn to #listen to themselves more & #trust themselves. Let’s help our young people learn to listen to their inner-voice” ~Amy Burke

“We all move too fast. It’s such a fast world. We spend a lot of time in our heads. All this energy in the brain, sometimes we need to pull it down in the body & slow down.” ~Kevin Hawkins
