Teaching Meditation in Schools

There’s a growing body of research that shows meditation working for students. This article from Edutopia talks about the specific ways in which a meditation practice can help students manage stress.

We’ve recently started doing it in our Health classes, and I’m excited to see how it goes. Middle School is a stressful time, and taking the time out to think can encourage self-awareness, calm, and hopefully… some perspective.
