Common sense is defined as ‘awareness that arises from intentional attention, in the present moment, and without judgment in expressing information moment by moment’. It has become increasingly common in recent years as a way to increase well-being and reduce stress levels. Contemplation can help reduce stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, improve sleep, and increase bowel movements. Contemplation improves mental health.
“Consideration is a way to make friends with our experience”
Researchers found that in many areas of society, compared with inactivity, thinking reduced anxiety, depression, and stress, and increased well-being. However, data have suggested that in more than one setting in 20 trials, sensible editors are less likely to develop anxiety and depression.
“Thinking is not difficult we needto remember to do it”
Benefits of mindfulness
Benefits of Understanding
Studies have shown that teaching children to think can have a profound effect on their cognitive abilities, especially the higher functions performed by the brain. The responsibilities of the executive are concerned with one’s ability to concentrate, shift focus, organize information, recall details, and participate in planning.
In fact, one study of third-grade students over an eight-week period found that during the school thinking process, students showed improvement in controlling their behavior and focusing on the work they did compared to the control group in which they did not participate in the thinking process.
Meanwhile, another study found that students who participated in a 24-week reflection program received better attention-based activities than other students at their elementary school. Similarly, pre-school research found that students with a thinking curriculum did better in academic performance tests. They also show significant improvements in areas that predict future learning success.
Emotional health, or a sense of wellbeing, is important for the health of each child. Not only is it a foundation for mental health, but it can also help prevent mental health issues such as:
Problems with self-esteem
Improved social interaction
Overall, remembering or participating in meditation activities not only helps students manage stress but also increases their sense of well-being. For example, one study found that after participating in a thinking process students had a better chance of reporting that they felt confident. Meanwhile, another study found that young children reported being calmer, better able to sleep, and have better health after participating in a stress reduction program for five weeks.
Difficulty in communicating and communicating with others can lead to problems with learning, understanding, and the school climate. But mindfulness programs have been shown to develop these skills and lead to better outcomes in school.
For example, a five-week primary school screening program resulted in better participation in classroom activities. Meanwhile, the high school reflection program has helped to increase respect and care among students and to improve the school climate.
Contemplation has also been shown to increase a child’s or adolescent’s ability to control emotions and to develop empathy and empathy. It is also widely regarded as an effective treatment for people of all ages experiencing anger, ADHD, or other mental health problems such as anxiety. It can also be used to alleviate the painful effects of bullying.
Thinking can also be used as a tool to develop self-reliance, to develop planning skills, and to control emotions. Also, when used effectively in schools, reasoning can reduce the number of visits to the principal’s office, reduce the number of school bullies, and improve attendance.
All in all, it is about making children and teenagers think about their thoughts and actions and learn to make better decisions. They no longer respond to things in their own place, but instead respond to them in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
Finally, when children and teens understand that they can control their thoughts, feelings, and actions, they not only make better choices but also feel more in control of their decision-making processes
Importance of mindfulness for students
When our students have present moment awareness of their body and emotional cues, they are better prepared to handle situations and be flexible. Mindfulness looks different depending on where are students are in their development. Young children begin by developing strong sense of self, then in later year’s practices expand to include ways for students to be selfless.
Body scan: Body scan meditation is a form of meditation where you focus on the sensitivity of your body. During a body scan, you will see how each part of the body feels, from your toes to the legs, chest, arms, and head. The benefits of meditating on body scans include managing chronic pain, reducing anxiety or depression, and getting better sleep.
During exercise, the participant is guided by three points where they are familiar, focus on their breathing, and extend their attention. Focusing on one’s breathing is intended to act as an anchor.
For this exercise, start by following one of the customizable videos listed below. While you are relaxing, focus on your breathing, and imagine how your body feels. Try to focus only on stretching work and avoid other distracting thoughts.
