Greetings Santa Teresa High School students,


I hope you enjoyed a relaxing break and a very Happy New Year!


We are already at the end of our third week of the New Year and for many of us the well-intended mindful and kind thoughts we may have felt during the break towards others and ourselves starts to crumble. We might already lost sight of some of our great new years resolutions and heading back into feeling stressed maybe even frustrated, anxious, or sad.


I am excited to share with you our new:


Mindful Monday Lunch Break at 12:40pm

at the Student Family Center, Room 802


You are invited to join us for a 5 minute quiet Mindful sit where we try to stay in the present moment and pay attention to our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, or surrounding environment.


Mindfulness is a scientifically based approach to develop and improve:


* Focused attention, with improved performance on objective tasks

* Emotional regulation, with moving from reactivity to thoughtful response

* Compassion towards others and greater self-compassion

* Feelings of e.g. anxiety and distress through calming deep breathe and focus on the present moment


I am trained in teaching mindfulness to students through an organization called Mindful Schools and participate at the moment in a yearlong program at Mindful Schools to even deepen my knowledge about Mindfulness and receive certification.


If you have any questions about our mindful sit during Lunch Break, please do not hesitate to contact me in the Student Family Center on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays, or by email. I am happy to be in touch with you.


Kind regards,

Daniela Ohlmeier, MSW, PPSC
