Stories

“This year my classroom is a lot more calm and focused. The idea of peace is what I needed all these years. My students are encouraging each other to stay calm in difficult moments. This year my students are less aggressive and have less conflicts. Thank you Calm Classroom!” 

Calm Classroom has had a powerful effect on me and my students. As a shared experience, we have developed a sense of community around these exercises. Together we have learned effective strategies for focus and relieving tension in our school environment.

Calm Classroom has benefited my students because it gives us daily non-academic time to come together as a community. My students who lead Calm Classroom feel a sense of ownership when they lead the class. For most students, Calm Classroom is an excellent resetting that helps us get focused and ready to learn.

As a daily routine, Calm Classroom has had a positive influence on my students. They can rely on 10 minutes each day to help them relax, calm down and get ready to focus. The classroom environment feels different after a Calm Classroom technique.

Calm Classroom makes us calm as the sea. Our emotions go from wild like waves to still and peaceful. We learn to focus and concentrate through breathing. We just calm down.

If more people did Calm Classroom they would think, "What’s the point of killing each other? Let’s calm down and think about it, let’s be brothers and sisters."

Why Calm Classroom?

Our mindfulness-based techniques provide students and teachers with the skills they need to feel happier and less stressed so that they can create a better world for themselves and others.
Self-Awareness

Self-awareness helps us to better understand how our thoughts and emotions influence our behavior so that we can make more conscious decisions.

Mental Focus

In a world filled with distractions, cultivating the skill of focused attention is more important than ever before.

Emotional Resilience

By learning effective emotional management strategies, students can self-regulate and achieve a state of calm in any moment.
