If someone told you that you can perform better on your exams without added pressure or time, would you believe it?
Seems too good to be true, right?
But there is a way to do just this through meditation.
It’s been proven by science, and more importantly, it’s been proven by the test of time because it’s been around for thousands of years.
Just ask the people of the east.
Today’s teens are overloaded, overstimulated. The Canadian Mental Health Association states that “overwhelming anxiety turns on your stress system and if it is kept on, new learning can’t happen. It’s interfering with your learning.
Some signs stress is interfering with your learning are:
- blanking when you’re writing a test, even though you’re thoroughly prepared.
- attending a class, taking notes, being engaged only to forget what you just learned within an hour of the class.
- you struggle to focus.
- you perform well on an exam, but you still don’t feel satisfied. You never feel like you’re enough.
MEDITATORS SHOW AN AVERAGE IQ GAIN OF 23%
Studies from UCLA found that meditation “Thickens the brain (in a good way) and strengthens the connections between brain cells.”
Other findings show that “Long-term meditators have larger amounts of gyrification (“folding” of the cortex, which may allow the brain to process information faster) than people who do not meditate.”
Meditation is a technique that is used by some of the top athletes, successful entrepreneurs and speakers around the world.
Meditation plays a big part in maintaining your focus and developing a mental practice that takes visualizing success into reality.
Psychology today found that “Mental practices can enhance motivation, increase confidence and self-efficacy, improve motor performance, prime your brain for success.”
