Meditation Helps Kids Under Pressure at Toronto School

One of the best schools in all of Canada, where peer pressure revolves around getting good grades, has turned to meditation to de-stress students.

WCTV reports on the school's new program called 'stress busters' in which kids can breathe in a session during lunch hour.

Sabina Wex is just one of the many students who says she was overstressed:

"Have you ever seen those cartoons where the head is throbbing and the veins, that's how i feel when I'm stressed."

But then Sabina began practicing mindfulness meditation and says, "I can figure out how to deal with the stress of all the work."

Namaste to that!
