Teenage is that period of our life when we are stuck between school, exams, sports, tuition and many other activities which result in our mental and health disorders. Adolescence is an important time for the development of mental health. Nowadays student’s life revolves around academic activities, assignment help, to score good grades in the examination, performing better at the workplace and a lot of other hectic activities. They don’t get much time for themselves or to relax their mind. To get first in the race of life, they lack somewhere behind and alleviate more and more stress for themselves. Several school based stress management and wellness programs have been encouraged to promote healthy living in students, as a result of which students have gained benefit. Apart from these programs yoga and meditation directly helps in contributing to improve mental focus and concentration among students. Yoga soothes our mind and body and helps to eliminate social and academic stress from students. Breath and movement combine yoga which helps in soothing cramped and jammed bodies. From first graders to college seniors, students may have youth on their side — but that doesn’t mean their lives are pressure-free. Hours a day sitting at desk or computer monitor and more hours doing homework cause a young body to tense up. Social and family pressures and, unfortunately, anxiety, abuse and bullying also take their toll. It all adds up to the same high stress levels that have caused the grown-up world to flock to yoga classes to find Zen. It’s therefore not surprising that educators are becoming increasingly interested in providing yoga classes at school. Stress is a major obstacle to academic achievement, and yoga’s stress relief powers have been shown to boost student performance. Yoga has been shown to improve memory in adults and children, a benefit that would seem certain to improve academic performance. Controlling attention is a challenge for children, partly because the brain’s frontal lobes, which control the power of attention, mature later than some other functions. Yoga requires attention, which can be a challenge for younger yogis, but it has also been found to enhance the ability to control attention, even in hyperactive children. In fact, studies of yoga as a palliative for ADHD have shown promise across the board. Family pressure, academic performance standards, financial fear and peer groups are some of the reasons which may take a student’s success in school. One of the primary benefits of yoga is to eliminate stress from young students. According to behavioral health services and research it is found that a student who participated in yoga instead of physical education has more exhibited improvement in mood, perceived stress and anxiety. Yoga and its movement help in drawing focus away from the busy and hectic day and reflect calming effects on your body. Students will feel happier and have improved mental focus and concentration after practicing yoga and meditation. This will also help them to gain higher grades, as they would easily complete their academic assignments and homework’s. Yoga has proved to be of great importance in increasing concentration power and sharpness of brain. Movements of yoga offer time for mind and body to relax and include increased focus on long, deep, slow breaths as well as coordination of mental concentration. Yoga focuses on peace of mind.
