This lesson was devised to mark Mindfulness Day, held on September 12th. However, it could be used at any time of year as this is not specifically mentioned.
The lesson begins by looking at a definition of mindfulness and finding out what students already know.
They then read a text about mindfulness, before focusing on vocabulary and grammar from the text.
Finally, they carry out a mindfulness activity themselves and discuss the experience.
The text used in the student worksheet for this lesson is available with interactive exercises for learners on our LearnEnglish website at https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/magazine/mindfulness
