Or Mindlessness?


I sense another non-academic curriculum on the way.

From District Administration:

Becoming a more mindful school leader
Being ‘present in the moment’ can be a powerful stress release

Lisa Gonzales

[president of the Association of California School Administrators]

In a world of round-the-clock distractions, being a mindful leader is a powerful tool. Mindfulness is simply the act of being consciously aware and of focusing on the present moment in a nonjudgmental way.

Research shows that mindfulness improves concentration, inspires creativity and energizes our interactions with others. Whether managing stress or achieving nirvana-like relaxation and focus, the qualities of mindfulness can help increase our leadership skills and personal satisfaction.

Mindfulness and being in the moment are really important to me. Whenever I hear someone tout the benefits of mindfulness, I know I no longer have to listen to the rest of what they say.

Freeing up all sorts of time.

“The practice of being present and attentive helps focus and refocus our interactions and strengthens our awareness.” — Lisa Gonzales
