Meditation is a way of turning inward and calming the mind. Children now live in a very fast-paced world with far more pressures than past generations. Meditation leads to better focus, self-control, relationships, and the ability to live in the moment. Children today face far more pressure at school to achieve results from a young age. Again, mindfulness can remove them from the pressure cooker and help clear their minds for a short while, resulting in less anxiety and worry. Anxiety and stress can quickly lead to depression, which then leads to other problems.

Just a few minutes a day of meditation can have amazing results in children’s mental health.

Meditation, even for a short while, is the equivalent of unplugging a child from the outside world so they can simply feel their own thoughts.

It’s a simple way to recharge the mind, which, in turn, leads to better performance in school and other activities.

Remember, children worry about life just as much as adults do, but it’s much harder for them to express it and talk about it.

In every class, we do 2 minutes of meditation, and the calmness is amazing to see.
