Growing evidence shows that Mindfulness and Meditation practice is beneficial to Tweens and Kids as they navigate the challenges of adolescence into teenage years by helping them self regulate their ability to relax, manage stress, anxiety and depression. Mindfulness practice also improves confidence, concentration and their ability to tune things out by becoming aware of what's happening with themselves.
Research has shown that a student’s academic achievement, future success in life and overall happiness can be greatly impacted by the attainment of the following three skills:
Self Regulation: Ability to attain, maintain and change reactions and behaviors appropriately
Focus: Ability to direct attention and manage distractions.
Resilience: Ability to adapt and thrive despite adversity and challenges.

Even in adults we use the analogy of the “Monkey Mind,” constantly jumping around from branch to branch, thought to thought. When we practice mindfulness, we learn that much of the chatter of the mind is just that: chatter. It's worry and anxiety. More than ever, in a world of constant motion, phones, computers, etc. kids need opportunities to move their bodies, develop face-to-face communication skills and practice focusing on just one thing at a time. One way they can get them is through learning mindfulness.
