My five year old recently discovered the joys of the Memory matching game and we’ve played a lot of rounds of it since.
Now print out the free Christmas Bingo as well and you’ve got yourself quite the party! Print off this game onto card stock paper, cut up the squares to match, and you can start playing!  Once you are done playing put the game into a zip lock bag for storage. The dollar store can be a fun place to stock up on different items to make simple activities. As we all know, mindfulness practices have been receiving growing attention both in the workplace and in the media. In order to answer how mindfulness impacts positive functioning of the brain, Cheisa et al.
In order to determine whether mindfulness training might have protective effects, two military cohorts were studied during their pre-deployment period. Certainly, these amazing results can be applied to other “performance under pressure” situations.
You can play this at school parties or kids parties that you throw or just play it with your kids during this fun season. When you print both of them you will have a full set of 24 pairs of Christmas themed cards to play with. Our Easter egg games for math and memory are perfect early learning games for toddlers through Kindergarten!
I used a couple packages of erasers and easter eggs to fill this fun styrofoam egg tray left over from our real eggs! We play with these plastic eggs all year so it’s good to have some new things to do with them! Yes, I think with a little creativity you can easily change the levels for fun and learning without frustration!


Certainly, abundant evidence has shown the clinical and psychological benefits to mindfulness training. Mindfulness training, referred to as M–Fit (mindfulness-based mind fitness training), was delivered as an 8–week course to one military group, but not the other.
It does not matter whether you are a firefighter, a paramedic on an ambulance run, or an employee facing a serious and taxing work week.
Aikens continued her education with further training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at the University of Massachusetts. Cut them out and if you want to get fun, you could print them on holiday paper so that the back of them is cute too!
The first game is called More or Less. We each chose an egg and counted the erasers inside. But what has the evidence said about improvements in performance, attention span or memory?
Overall, preliminary evidence is positive; suggesting that even moderately brief mindfulness interventions can improve attention, memory and executive functioning. The purpose of the study was to determine whether a mindfulness intervention might be beneficial during this difficult time. During this time, researchers found that the working memory in the group who did not receive the M-Fit training decreased. We all could benefit from extra working memory and less negative affect when faced with stressful or difficult situations.
She has studied in programs developed by world-renowned doctors Andrew Weil, Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Joseph Goldstein and has received numerous certifications. Due to her interest in bringing both Integrative Medicine and mindfulness solutions to corporate health, she subsequently designed the Aikens Approach. When I am not being a mom or a wife I love to bake, I love to sew, I love to read and I don't like to sit still.


Findings also show that mindfulness enhances working memory, and may prevent loss of working memory prior to stressful events. Prior studies had reported that military deployment increases the likelihood of acute and long-term psychological injury, in addition to physical harm.
However, those who took the M-Fit training, particularly those who practiced frequently, saw significant improvements in working memory. Overall, the mindfulness evidence shows that in such situations our performance may well improve, but just as importantly, so will our quality of life. Aikens was struck by the overwhelming literature supporting the efficacy of alternative practices on patient outcomes. Welcome to Crazy Little Projects where I show off my latest crazy projects and show you how you can do them too. In fact, investigators have found that the cognitive functioning of troops decreases, while emotional disturbances increase during deployment (Stanley et al, 2009; Maguen et a, 2008). This improved working memory was correlated with lower levels of negative moods and affect. Hard: Match specific flower, robot and butterflies to one another! The harder lever definitely takes greater concentration! The second version is a Counting Game. We each chose two eggs, counted the individual eggs and then added the eggs together. Overall, researchers concluded that mindfulness training might be protective, potentially providing soldiers with greater cognitive resources in highly stressful and challenging situations, including in counterinsurgency environments.
