Stix' mindfulness framework
4 weeks with
The study involved eight children between the ages of 9-10, seven girls, and one boy. The four-week Stix mindfulness skills training program consisted of 12 different activities, which were split into weeks, with three activities to be completed daily. The children were interviewed about their experience with the Stix on a weekly basis and then on completion.
Overall, the Stix Remotes and the activities were well received by the children, and the results suggest an improvement in psychological wellbeing. However, due to the small sample size in this pilot study, a more detailed study, including a matched control group/training, is recommended before making any conclusions about how Stix technology helps children’s mental health and wellbeing.
