A 5 minute daily meditation for all Scottish children

This petition had 208 supporters

I would like to see all children in the education system in Scotland have a 5 minute meditation session every day at school, this includes all current education from pre-school to secondary, special needs and vocational education. This can be easily implemented at relatively low cost and minimal training for those who will implement it and it can be achieved in a short space of time in schools up and down the country. 

True and proper investment is crucial to building resilience and skills for our children to cope with the many and varied demands on them in modern day life. The mental health of our youth is of concern to all of us. Let's show them we care and see the impact of this small but powerful action. This small change in routine can have awesome results and has been proven effective already therefore there is no need for research to be done. The tremendous impact will benefit physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of children. Possible improved results at school, less disruptive behaviour, more tolerant and respectful of others, less children with formal mental health diagnosis, less medicated children, less violence and reduced crime rates, positive impact and reduction in addictive behaviours. 

Children are the future.....this is a no brainer.......please sign the petition.....lets make it happen......
