Improves Teachers’ Emotional Well-being

meditation-image-103Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) found that meditation yielded improvement in the emotional well-being of teachers. The study involved the participation of female schoolteachers in an 8-week training program that was based on three types of meditative techniques, including concentration, mindfulness, and directive exercises. By enhancing their understanding of the relationship between thought and emotion, teachers were able to control their own emotional reactions more easily which resulted in lower levels of depression, stress and anxiety. The teaching profession is notably stressful, researchers acknowledged, indicating that the meditation program can have immediate positive effects in the participants’ daily lives, and could potentially also benefit the students that they teach.
