Amazing Minds developed the SELFIE technique to introduce a way of taking a mindful pause and learning to be more present when life pushes your buttons. It was intended as a way of identifying emotions, calming emotions, and improving emotional literacy, laying the foundations for more formal mindfulness practices.  The SELFIE technique can be done discreetly, or as part of a group, wherever you are and whenever you need to take a brain break and make space for whatever you are feeling, rather than pushing it down or allowing it to overwhelm you.

 

Taking a mindful pause several times a day can really help both adults and children to deal with their emotions. 

The SELFIE time app is an engaging and memorable way to take that pause. it’s completely free to download and use.
