It’s that time of year where it seems like there is no end to the tests, midterms, assignments and essays due. The deadlines keep coming and going and you find yourself to be constantly stressed and overwhelmed.
Luckily, there’s a way to improve your grades, productivity, and relationships. Research has proven that meditation can decrease academic stress, lower levels of anxiety and depression, and increase confidence in class room settings. A daily practice promotes stronger relationships through compassion and helps students to focus for longer periods of time.
Meditation can be daunting at first and you might say “I don’t have the time” or “I just can’t sit still.” Because of the busy school weeks filled classes and assignments, it’s difficult to take time out of your day to sit and meditate.
