Take Time for Meditation

Summer break is the perfect time to practice meditation. Meditation can create a range of mental and physical health benefits including stress and anxiety reduction, improvement in mood, increased focus and self-compassion, among many others. You can find guided meditations at calm.com, or check out the mindfulness tab on the Healthy Penn State website.  If you want a research-based program, download the free the Healthy Minds Program app from the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin. The program will walk you through the four pillars (awareness, connection, insight, purpose) of the science of training the mind.
