In-Class Behavior Gets Better
Mindfulness, aka focusing on being aware in the present moment through meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises, has numerous mental health benefits for adults. But what about when it comes to kids? According to recent studies, introducing concepts of meditation and mindfulness into the classroom can have some serious perks for students and teachers alike.
Whether their teacher introduces a postlunch stretch or a morning deep-breathing session, allowing kids to focus on themselves and their bodies for just 10 minutes a day can really go a long way when it comes to academic performance.
Here's how making meditation commonplace in your kid's classroom — or at home, so they can take their learnings into school with them — can help them reach their goals even faster.
