facebook Students in Dana Olson's physical education class at Walker's Grove Elementary School are learning the benefit of mindfulness.

Olson is teaching students calming breathing techniques, visualization skills and stress reduction poses.

Students also are learning how to focus their minds on being present in the moment.

Taking a moment to check in with oneself can give students the power to choose their response to daily circumstances carefully, Olson said. #202proud
