Social and Emotional
The Mindfulness Movement Programme
Mindfulness is a state of being aware of one's thoughts and sensations. Studies have shown that the practice, which includes meditation, has been known to calm people down and reduce stress. Schools here and overseas have, in recent years, introduced mindfulness practice to help students refocus their thoughts and regulate their emotions.
The Mindfulness Movement Program was first successfully piloted in the Singapore Girls Home, to help reduce stress and enhance emotional well- being. A survey conducted with the participants showed that 80% of the girls felt more positive about themselves after the programme. With its success, ECF has extended the programme to 9 residential homes in Singapore and benefitted 150 beneficiaries.
The Programme was also mentioned in The Straits Times on the 5th February 2019.
