As educators, we aim for our students to be engaged in collaborative learning with their peers – demonstrating their ability to be problem solvers and innovative thinkers. Inner Explorer fosters this type of learning environment through audio-guided mindfulness practices that both students and educators can participate in. These practices teach social-emotional skills, such as self-awareness and emotional regulation, in an easy and accessible format. Daily mindfulness has been shown to enhance resilience and bolster collaboration – important skills for succeeding in school and beyond.
Research shows that nearly 40% of students endure chronic stress due to adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma. Chronic stress triggers a biological chain reaction that inhibits healthy brain development and prevents learning.
Mindfulness gives children the opportunity to break this cycle. With Inner Explorer mindfulness programs, students learn how to slow down and observe their experiences, how to notice thoughts and emotions without being defined by them, plus how to navigate challenges with more clarity and ease.
As a result, students experience improved focus, reduced stress and better academic performance. In a study of Inner Explorer programs, results demonstrated a 15% increase in average G.P.A., 28% higher grades in math, reading and science and a 60% reduction in behavioral issues.
REDUCES STRESS Students, educators and families who practice daily mindfulness report a decrease in stress and an improvement in overall well-being.
CULTIVATES SEL SKILLS Inner Explorer programs are approved by the Collaborative for Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) and make learning SEL skills easy and accessible.
IMPROVES LEARNING Daily mindfulness practice is proven to increase readiness to learn, focus and academic performance.
ADDRESSES MENTAL HEALTH Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and trauma can impact a child’s ability to learn – daily mindfulness is a research-backed tool to cope with these challenges.
