How Meditation Can Help Students Master Life | Edudemic

Worth a try? I think that as the pace of our world tends to increase exponentially and time is our one major scarcity, it is scary to set aside some mental space for what seems to be the indulgent practice of simply calming ourselves down. But the article below cites studies that prove that in effect, taking this time to get more in touch with ourselves actually saves us time in the form of reduced stress, clarity of mind, more energy and better immune system.

It also gives three simple tricks on how you can implement this in the classroom. What would happen if we asked the students to arrive a few minutes before an exam (or started five minutes later) and took a minute to practice some mindfulness? I wonder if the results would not reflect the calmer state of mind…

Students benefit from meditation & the methods that they can use to excel in school, perform well in sports and activities, and have more emotional control.
