Today’s world surrounds us with so many sources of distraction, which make us less engaged and less effective, and can even lead to mental health problems. In this talk, Richard Chambers explains how mindfulness is a tool for increasing self-awareness and how it can help create a generation of young people better equipped to solve the problems we are facing in the world today. Dr Richard Chambers is a clinical psychologist, mindfulness consultant, author and speaker. He started practising mindfulness in 1999 and since then has been increasingly involved in integrating it into mainstream education. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
