Study Suggests Meditation as a Viable ADHD Treatment
Research has shown that the practice of Transcendental Medication may help ADHD children manage stress, calm anxiety and improve focus.
Monday February 16th - 11:52am
A pilot study conducted by cognitive learning specialists suggests that Transcendental Mediation is a promising alternative treatment to help ADHD children manage their symptoms. ADHD children who practiced meditation techniques showed improvements in attention, working memory, organization, and behavior regulation.
The practice of transcendental meditation involves calming the mind and body while sitting quietly for 10 – 15 minutes and silently repeating a mantra. The ADHD students practiced meditation for ten minutes twice a day. After three months of regular practice, students reported reduced ADHD symptoms including lower anxiety levels.
