Feeling stressed out or anxious about looming deadlines? We’ve found 5 relaxing mediations for students that help you find your zen again.
 

1. Find your breath


When you’re stressed or anxious, your breathing becomes much faster and much shallower. Becoming aware of your breath and regulating it to a consistent, deep breathing pattern is central to relaxing the body and clearing the mind. In this relaxing meditation for students, you’ll spend 12 minutes solely on breath work in order to find your balance.

2. Get back to basics


This meditation plays like a how-to for beginners; if you’ve never meditated before or find you can’t really relax into most meditations, then it’s best to start here. The instructor talks you through the purpose behind the meditation, with a few handy tips on how to get out of your own head and succeed at relaxing.


 

3. Get a good night’s sleep


If you’re tossing and turning at night, it can make for a stressed-out and irritable tomorrow. Practicing meditation before you switch off for the night is a great way to get your mind off your worries and sink into a comfortable sleep. Most meditations are designed to calm your body and your mind in a way that makes deep sleep easier to achieve, so you can try any one of these relaxing meditations for students pre-bedtime.



4. Siblings stressing you out? Get them involved


Calm is not usually part of kids’ vocabularies, so it’s easy to see how younger siblings could become a source of tension at home. Instead of fighting against them? Rope them in with an easy and relaxing meditation for kids. This one simplifies the process and speaks in language that kids can understand.


 

5. Move your body to calm your mind


If you find you can’t sit still long enough for a regular meditation, then a yoga routine with meditation principles at the core might be more up your alley. Spending some time away from screens and really focusing on your feelings and recognising the stress in your body should be the focus here.
