Student life is not fun for everyone; it can also be stressful and difficult. This is true not only for those in schools beset with problems like soaring drug and alcohol abuse or unprecedented violence. In every school, no matter in what neighborhood, students face challenges—from intensive study schedules to social pressure from peers. The life of a student isn’t just an exciting time of opening to a universe of knowledge, it’s a first-hand introduction to some of life’s most intense pressures.
That’s just one reason why students need the deep rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation of meditation. You learn better when you are happy and relaxed. Yet there’s an even better reason to consider meditation as a learning tool for students: What better time to expand, deepen, and clear your mind when learning is your first priority? This is just when it really makes sense to begin to unfold your full creative potential. Studies have correlated the practice of meditation with higher creativity, increased intelligence, and improved memory. That’s because meditation not only clears the mind, but opens a person to the deeper, silent, creative levels of thought.
There’s also good news for concerned parents: meditation has been shown effective in treating drug and alcohol abuse. That’s because unfolding your full potential, and abusing anything, just aren’t compatible. Give a student a taste of who they can really be, and why would they want to become anything else?
