Today’s youth are faced with the burden of stress, anxiety and overwhelm at increasingly younger ages. Mindfulness meditation techniques can assist young people in developing daily routines for cultivating mental and emotional health that will help them to succeed in school and in life.
Mindfulness meditation is not only cost effective and simple, but it can be done through short intervals throughout the day. Whether in the classroom or in-home, implementing short mindfulness activities ranging from 1 minute to 20 minutes can assist a child in reducing stress and cultivating self-awareness and emotional resilience.
Mindfulness has become a mainstream focus among researchers and academics. The main attraction to teaching this life-skill is that it decreases stress, and encourages self-care and empathy. Academic administrators appreciate it’s cost-effectiveness and simplicity.
