Integrating Mindfulness/Meditation Training into K-12 Education

Since 2005, 14 studies of programs that directly train students in mindfulness have collectively demonstrated a range of cognitive, social, and psychological benefits to both elementary (six studies) and high school (eight studies) students. These include improvements in working memory, attention, academic skills, social skills, emotional regulation,
and self-esteem, as well as self-reported improvements in mood and decreases in anxiety, stress, and fatigue. Please read the complete study here at this link:

Meditation and ageing: Cognitive improvements in older adults

The results of the scientific research done at Research Centre for Brain and Behaviour Liverpool John Moores University, UK shows that engaging in just over 10 min of mindfulness practice five times per week resulted in significant improvements in behavioral (response latency) and electrophysiological (N2 event-related potential) measures related to general task performance.

Overall, the results indicate that engaging in mindfulness meditation training improves the maintenance of goal-directed visuospatial attention and may be a useful strategy for counteracting cognitive decline associated with aging. Full Research study can be found at the below link:
