The benefits of mindfulness and meditation are numerous and in adults has been shown to positively influence the brain including impulse control, decision making, perspective taking, emotional regulation, learning and memory as well as numerous physical benefits.
In our fast-paced society it has become increasingly evident that even children are becoming sensitive to the effects of stress. Mental health in children and teenagers has become a growing concern in our society. Mindfulness is a great way to work against that. When practiced regularly it can help develop and optimize each child’s capacity to reduce stress and anxiety and improve executive function (attention, rationale, emotional regulation and memory retention), sleep and self-esteem.
