    • Gigi, I agree with your post stating how beneficial mediation can be in our everyday lives. We are constantly targeted by stress and anxiety each day at school and with the implantation of yoga or meditation our ability to focus would increase and our anxiety would decrease. Alleviating as much stress as possible out of our everyday lives will allow much more production to come from the endless hours we spend in school.

    • I agree! While I recognize that not everyone will want to do yoga I do maintain the belief that having some time to vent frustration, anxiety, sadness, and other things of similar nature is extremely important.

    • I love what you have to say here! This is pretty beneficial to me as a musician and performer who struggles with performance and generalized anxiety and depression. I have found meditation to be the best reliever of my anxiety and yoga has been amazing in teaching me how to cope when life gets difficult. It’s obvious how much research you put into this article and your writing reflects that you have a clear understanding of the subject. Nice work!

    • I thought this was really cool. I have read multiple studies on how helpful meditating can be, and I’ve always found it so interesting how putting a small window of time away to meditate can affect so much.

    • Hello Gigi,

      I find it very interesting that people have had benefits from meditating. i have tried it before and never got much from it. I also only did it one time so its probably a process that has to be repeated a few times to get a benefit. Maybe what I was doing also didn’t help. I should have maybe researched the subject before trying it out of the blue.
      I like what you wrote it makes me very interested in researching the subject.

      have a nice day

    • I am thrilled about your essay “The Mind and Its Benefits from Meditation” because I didn’t know yoga and meditation can naturally solve mental problems. I thought it just relax one’s brain and go on about their day. One thing that stood out to me is, “Meditation helps students expand their capacity to think in class which allows them to retain more information.” Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you know your stuff and contain useful information for readers.

    • Gigi! What a great essay topic. I personally love meditation and yoga. It’s great to know all of the positive impacts it can have on one’s health. It’s amazing to know all the impacts it can have on your body but also your mental health. It was very fun and interesting reading about this topic. It was also very well written! Great Job!!
