Physiological benefits of meditation
Consistent practice of meditation permanently strengthens the most evolved portion of the brain, the frontal lobe.
This increases cognitive reasoning, creativity and positivity. This triggers the brain to release natural occurring neurotransmitters including dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin & endorphins, which increases brain plasticity.
Studies clearly prove regular meditation improves blood circulation, lowers the heart rate, improves immunity and mental retention.
Emotional benefits of meditation
Natural occurring neurotransmitters from the brain are linked to different aspects of happiness from simple pleasure to a deep sense of calm.
Regardless of spiritual beliefs or way of meditation, sitting for 5-15 minutes each day has a profound effect on clearing negative emotions, balancing hormones and emotions. Assisting students to be more at peace within themselves, self-regulate behaviour, be more present, accepting and kind to themselves and others.
benefits of art for child development
Through creative art, children may be able to represent experiences they cannot verbalise. This can lead to creative writing, movement/dance or other creative modalities.
They may draw images out of proportion, exaggerating things important to them. Different colours and symbols can have a significant meaning & expression for individual children.
Creating art relieves stress, encourages creative thinking and focus learning. Their art is encouraged to be respected by peers and teachers thus helping them feel valued and raising self-esteem.
