The new studies carried out by the government of the United Kingdom have allowed teaching Meditation in schools. It is a very important decision that will favour coexistence within the classroom. The complicated situations that sometimes occur may be due to students not knowing how to manage their emotions.
The classes will be taught in 370 schools across the country. With this discipline, the students learn about their emotions and how they can handle them.
They significantly improve their mental health and increase their empathy. The classes consist of learning relaxation techniques, meditation and different ways of breathing. The benefits are not the only individual, but also have an impact on the class environment. This program helps the children to improve their attention and emotional balance.
Teaching these techniques is not only good for school students. There are initiatives for secondary schools where topics are dealt with in greater depth. Practising Mindfulness can bring a sense of deeper connection and awareness to teenagers. The simple Mindfulness exercises will help to strengthen emotional and mental resilience in the person of all ages. In secondary school, students should introduce the exercises in their daily practice. It is a way to improve the mental health of the population that can not afford expensive treatments. According to statistics, only 1 out of 5 children with mental issues can get access to treatment.
The most important problems faced with these classes are stress and anxiety. We can deal with this pandemic through Meditation and Mindfulness. The key to introducing the practice in your day a day life is to keep it simple and fun. Small exercises will help us to feel more connected to ourselves and the world around us. Students are more focused on their studies and significantly improve the management of their emotions. We just have to fight laziness.
