Teaching children mindfulness meditation will prove useful into adulthood - it will help them manage stress and anxiety better.
What is Mindfulness Meditation?
Mindfulness meditation entails one to concentrate on the present moment as opposed to past experiences or future worries. It requires us to be aware of our own thoughts or sensations as they occur in the present. The aim is to be mindful of things occurring in our own mind or body, without attaching any emotions or judgements on to them.
Mindfulness has been observed to increase the gray matter of areas in the brain involved in memory, learning and emotional processing. It has also been shown to reduce the levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in the body. Mindfulness meditation improves the mood by reducing levels of stress, anxiety and depression as shown in recent studies.

As a classroom practice, meditation can help students strengthen their focus. It also boosts their overall health, reduces negative feelings, and fosters compassion.
