We have created lessons oriented around Kindness, Optimism, and Awareness, to support educators and students to be KOA.
The THRIVE TIME framework
Cognitive and neuroscientific studies indicate that regular practice is vital for developing any skill, and mindfulness is no different (Vinogradov, Fisher, De Villers-Sidani 2012). The benefits of mindfulness are maximized when practised daily.
Based on this evidence, we recommend mini-mindful practices throughout the day, between 5 and 10 minutes daily, and one 30-45 minute teaching session per week.
We provide lessons that meet the SEL Ontario curriculum objectives and and we have simplified it even further by creating a consistent framework for delivering Koa lessons using the acronym THRIVE TIME.
