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).

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.

Next I spoke with Dr. Amy Saltzman of Still Quiet Place. She has actually been mentoring me through forming the Kids Association for Mindfulness in Education, which is under the adult version, the Association for Mindfulness in Education. KAME is a place for tweens and teens to come together and talk about world events, how to collaborate to make positive change in the world, and help form interest based mindfulness clubs in schools. This is what she had to say:
“As teens & with social media, just as human beings, we can spend a lot of time beating ourselves up so it’s really important to pay attention with kindness & compassion & a sense of humor so that we can change our behavior.”
“Your generation is really proving that you have the passion, energy & resilience to make a difference…so to be able to support your passionate voices in making a difference, I think is really important.”
