Benefits of Meditation for Kids


Here are some ways kids can benefit from different meditation techniques.

1. Learning even, regular breathing gives instant stress relief on a moment's notice. The regular even breathing is a bridge that ties body to mind; when breathing is made regular it calms the physical body.

2. Following the sequence within a meditation develops memory and the ability to concentrate.

3. Longer meditations give the body and mind time to relax and center.

4. I found in teaching, that active or hyperactive kids moving in rhythm with the group - such as in the circle meditation or dance meditation - derive a calming effect.

5. Meditation is non-competitive, and each can participate to their own ability with adaptations if needed, or by working with a partner.

6. Meditation can be done individually or in a group setting and it does not need a special place to practice.
