Mindfulness is a useful tool that young people can use to build self-confidence and stay motivated. It can also be used to maintain their emotional wellbeing, deal with stress, and help them to reach their personal goals. This week we bring you three activities to introduce mindfulness techniques to young people.

Virgin recognised how practising mindfulness is a key tool in keeping issues such as stress, insomnia and anxiety at bay.
