Meditation for all P.E. Students

Ava Smith, Staff Reporter

“Meditation is a practice in which an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state,” according to Merriam Webster Dictionary. Everyone needs to take time out of their day to meditate and reflect on their life, especially the freshman students. When I was a freshman, I wished I had an opportunity to clear my mind and get my thoughts back on track. Normally it’s only the Fit for Life students who practice this. The other classes deserve to also have that time. The benefits of meditation carry over in everyday life. I would love for meditation to be included once a week in all physical education classes. Everyone deserves the right to be able to have that one quiet moment to not think about anything else.
