Mindful Leadership 

Mindfulness is also known as Heartfulness, because the practice of being in the moment without judgement cultivates happiness, compassion, kindness and connection to self and others. It provides a way for us to pay attention to our experience so that we can respond rather than react. 

The activities provided below are from two amazing organizations, Project Happiness and Mindful Schools, These organizations develop their curriculum based on Neuroscience, Positive Psychology and Mindfulness.

Using the suggested Mindful activities before and after K-Kids club service projects and events will help club members be more open and present, learning more from each K-Kids experience.
