Mindful Chess was created out of a passion for the game, but also out of a desire to hone concentration and focus in the busy lives of today’s children.
We believe that chess itself is mindful for chess requires focus on what is going on in the present moment. That said, we also respect more general mindfulness practices as a tool for children of all ages to increase happiness and decrease anxiety. Even the simplest mindfulness activities can develop curiosity and focus while helping children let go of their worries in the classroom.
