Over 20 years ago I graduated with both a psychology and education degree excited to take on my new role as a school teacher. I was naïve at the time as I thought I’d save every student. I tried to take them all under my wing as I witnessed bullying, depression, stress, anxiety and the list goes on and on. In the end I realized as much as I was their teacher they too were my teacher. The best thing I could do for them was to teach them compassion (lead by example) and give them the life skills and the tools needed so they could lead healthier lives both physically and mentally. So with that in mind, I developed a TIME OUT: Mindfulness Training & Kit for students, teachers and parents. The kit includes a cd, mindfulness exercises as well as mindfulness techniques for relaxation, stress reduction, memory, concentration, focus, and depression. It's simple and easy to do. All you need is you! Susan Agrios
