Meditation for Children
Meditation is a wonderful age-old tradition that has been practiced by numerous cultures over many thousands of years. It is something that many people have gravitated towards at some point in their lives. Many people choose to meditate either when they feel inner turmoil or when they have a desire to connect to their body and mind.
The benefits are many, ranging from better focus to a more positive outlook on life. Many people do not realize that children can benefit from meditation and yoga just as much as adults. In fact establishing the habit of this healthy practice can be the start of a life-long routine for your child. In a time where so many children are feeling anxious, restless or disconnected; meditation can provide inner peace, strength and happiness. This translates into better sleep, better grades in school, increased creativity and more!
In a large study completed in 2012, children who were diagnosed with ADHD and who were taking medications to control their disorders were instructed to begin daily meditation and over 50% of the children had such positive reactions that they were able to reduce or completely stop their medications.
