Meditation To Motivation For Kids

 

What if we told you that much of what most parents want for their kids, emotionally, socially and personally, is accessible thru meditation?

You probably wouldn’t believe it… but the impact of meditation on kids can be life-changing. 

Kids learn to become more aware of their own bodies and their reaction to stress so that they can better take control of their emotional and physical states. This ability to calm themselves when they experience stress is an invaluable tool!

What does studies say about kids meditation?

 

The Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (JAACAP) and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) published research that showed an estimated two million more children in the U.S. were diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) between 2003 and 2012 and one million more children were taking medication for it. What's more concerning is—most of the diagnoses started before the age of six.

A study done at the National Therapies Research Unit at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney Australia, showed significant improvements in ADHD symptoms with children who were taught to meditate. The children reported improved attention spans and less hyperactivity.

Other encouraging side effects listed were:

  • Improved relationships with their parents
  • Better sense of self-esteem
  • 50 percent of the children that were on medication either reduced or stopped their medication completely, and still continued to improve their symptoms through continued meditation

Although this is not a cure, exposing our children to these ancient, yet practical, techniques could help them to cope better with stress and grow into living healthier lives.
