Meditation Improves Sociol-Emotional Competency in Children

Teacher Insights

Social-emotional competencies can be significantly improved by practising meditation in schools, according a new study reported in Education.

The study conducted over a 4-month period among 51 sixth grade students found that transcendental meditation improved social-emotional competencies and reduction in negative emotional symptoms compared to the control group. There were improvements in personal responsibility, optimism, relationship skills and goal-directed behaviour among those who took part in transcendental meditation.

The schools can greatly enhance the quality of learning of students by implementing meditation programs.
