Benefits of Meditation for Students

Have kids in school?  Specially have kids in high school?  Are you a student in school, high school or college and wondering if meditation will benefit you?  Well wonder no longer, meditation is absolutely fantastic for young people and in this article I want to discuss some very interesting research that was conducted on this very topic; benefits of meditation for young people and students.

The study originally was intended to determine the affect of meditation on blood pressure.  Students with high blood pressure were taught meditation and another group, with high blood pressure, were taught how to lower blood pressure, but not taught meditation.  The results were emphatic and clearly demonstrated that meditation significantly reduced blood pressure in all situations.

This study was then expanded to measure the affects of meditation on other aspects of student life, and young people from six different schools were included in the new study.  Here are the findings of this research.
