Meditation: New help for stressed-out kids
Recent research on the Transcendental Meditation® technique and ADHD, academic achievement, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse
National Webconference DavidLynchFoundation.org/conference
Stress undermines learning and health. The optimal mental state for a student to learn is relaxed alertness, according to extensive research. The Transcendental Meditation technique produces a unique state of 'restful alertness,' which integrates brain functioning, improves academic achievement, reduces stress and anxiety, improves executive function, and reduces symptoms in students with ADHD.
This national webconference will introduce you to this research-based, non-drug approach to improving academic achievement and reducing stress and stress-related disorders among students.
