There's no way to make sense of what's happening around our world and in our country. As I attempt to comprehend recent tragedies feelings of fear, anger, and sadness flood me making it difficult to put my thoughts into words. But I need to. Children including my own look to me for answers. Mindfulness had allowed me to become more contemplative, reflective and has taught me to carefully chose my words as I look into the eyes of kids who need and deserve to feel safe, loved, and protected. It's times like these that Reboot's mission becomes more clear to me. Making mindfulness accessible and affordable while providing a school wide mindfulness program to improve and unify a school community is one of our goals. As we broaden and build Reboot, we won't compromise that. Now more than ever we all need to Reboot and become more mindful to help ourselves and our children, our future become more empathetic, socially conscious and emotionally intelligent human beings.
