“Scientists have been able to prove that meditation and rigorous mindfulness training can lower cortisol levels and blood pressure, increase immune response and possibly even affect gene expression," reports Kate Pickert in TIME magazine’s June 2016 special edition, The Science of Happiness.

"Educators are turning to mindfulness with increasing frequency – perhaps a good thing, considering how digital technology is splitting kids’ attention spans too... A Bay Area-based program called Mindful Schools offers online mindfulness training to teachers, instructing them in how to equip children to concentrate in classrooms and deal with stress. Launched in 2007, the program has reached more than 300,000 pupils, and educators in more than 100 countries."

The Out of the Box Training Kit, Are Your Children in Times Square, asks educators to assess the stimulation in an early childhood setting to see if it might be adding to sensory overload. This is another way to help children deal with stress.
