—- On behalf of Chloe (12) and Parker (9)—-
Deadline : Tuesday January 23, 2018
We live in a busy world with emails and texts, social media, work, trying to get the family fed, homework done you probably feel stressed out on a daily basis. The idea of becoming addicted to technology and in particular social media has become an issue in the news that even early Facebook creators are now publicly talking about.
Did you know there is a simple habit you can use to naturally calm yourself down and appreciate life a bit more.
It’s called mindfulness.
As our elementary school science experiment, we developed the following question and hypothesis:Does more or less mindfulness make you feel better? Hypothesis: Parker and I think practicing mindfulness for longer periods of time will help people’s overall health.
Mindfulness is the practice of purposefully focusing all of your attention on the current moment, and accepting it without judgment. This is a great place to start if you are looking for the key element in happiness.
Done correctly, mindfulness will allow you to decrease your stress and anxiety, minimize the amount of time that you spend feeling overwhelmed, and help you appreciate each small moment as it happens.
—- My Brother and I could use your help—-
We are going to track participants over a two week period and we’d like to hear how practicing mindfulness at different levels (3, 5 and 15 minutes) affects how you feel.
If you agree to help with our project, we’d ask you to download and use the FREE app MINDFULNESS (Google and Apple).
We will email you reminders to log how you feel on our website 8 times over 2 weeks from January 24 th to February.
If you are interested in signing up for our experiment, please enter your information below and we will send you the instructions. Deadline is end of day, January 23rd.
