Mindfulness Helps Teens with Depression

Mindfulness Helps Teens with Depression | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it
Mindfulness is entering the lives of many new young people as it’s added to school curriculums around the world. This victory is even more relevant as studies show that mindfulness helps reduce teen depression.
Kat Tansey's insight:

The need for bringing mindfulness into school curriculums is urgent. There are enough studies now that to prove it is effective.

 

It is time to act. Do what you can to promote this. Do it where you are. Do it with what you have.

 

Build teams to make this happen. Expect resistance. Create a plan. Get someone who knows about selling involved. 

 

This can be done. We can do this. Now.

Relax, kids: Meditation touted as stress buster for children

I haven’t studied enough. I’m going to fail the test. My mom’s going to be mad. Maybe I’ll skip class.

 

Thoughts like these can quickly gallop out of control in kids’ minds, but what if there was a way they could clear them away? Enter the three-minute breathing meditation, which can be done anywhere, whether it’s on the bus or in a school hallway.

Mindfulness Meditation for Adults & Teens with ADHD

Mindfulness Meditation for Adults & Teens with ADHD | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it

As con­cep­tu­al­iza­tions of ADHD now increas­ingly rec­og­nize the impor­tance of exec­u­tive func­tion­ing and self-regulation in the dis­or­der, mind­ful­ness med­i­ta­tion — which can be thought of as a type of attention/cognitive exer­cise pro­gram that is focused in improv­ing self-regulation — is a com­ple­men­tary treat­ment that is well worth inves­ti­gat­ing.
