"Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom" - Victor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning
We believe that embodying mindfulness will help us meet the challenges of life in a FIRST robotics team with inner stillness and kindness.
Mindfulness is paying attention to our experience in a way that allows us to respond rather than react. It is cultivated by practicing simple techniques to focus our attention on our experience in the present moment.
As a team, we are practicing mindfulness:
increase our abilities to focus,
recognise and manage our emotions,
make better decisions, and
empathise with each other.
