Mindhood takes traditional mindfulness training into the digital age. Does training students to recognize the correlations between their digital habits and their time and energy management skills impact their mood, focus and productivity? When done in tandem with in peer communities, does it reduce the current stress, anxiety, and depression that college students are increasingly experiencing? Stay tuned as we work to find out!
- Introduction to meditation. We see mindhood as the first touch and offer ways for students to take a deeper dive into meditative practices in their communites by helping them find mindfulness training groups on their campus.
- Technology use and time-management skills. We offer in-person training for students to learn about how phones are distracting and how meditation can counter the effects of too much phone time.
- Community building/peer leadership skills. Creating new habits is easier to do with friends. mindhood provides students with phone free, team building activites that help students reinforce the skills they are learning in their college communities.
- Fitness, healthy eating, productive study habits, and respectful social interactions are all positively impacted by participating in the mindhood program.
We are also launching My Hood (TM) a proprietary community texting ecosystem where students can connect with peers, find resources, track daily progress and support one another in phone-free activities to see the effect mindful choices can have on their happiness.
