Yoga And Meditation Can Help Young Adults With Learning
Do you remember how hard it was to concentrate when you were a teenager? Between gossip, adolescence, graduation and self-actualization, there just wasn't a lot of time to keep your "eye on the ball", as the saying goes. Add into that melange substance abuse and/or legal troubles, eventually you get a cocktail that'll likely result in addiction or failure to launch.
Young adults do not have the requisite experience to meter their activity yet. You remember how you could "drink" when you were younger. You also remember how that ability seemed to decline as you got older, and components of this fleshy vehicle you call a body began to wear out just like car parts do. But your teen hasn't got to that point yet, and has no idea what they're about to face.
The Hard Way And The Easy Way
Now there are two ways teens can go about learning. They can do it the hard way, and realize why following mom and dad's advice is good for one's health (fifteen years-or-so after the fact), or they can do it the easy way and straighten up while still young. Research shows that Yoga is a great way to enhance concentration; and this is one reason it is a big part of Red Mountain Sedona's mindfulness training. When the body and mind are properly aligned, a kind of conduit of focused attention can be mined. Think of it like matching pitches instrumentally, or "getting in the groove".
At-risk youth often struggle with things like ADD or ADHD. Sometimes these things are properly diagnosed, oftentimes they are not. Making a child dependent on stimulates for concentration at an early age is a sure way to facilitate dependance and substance abuse in later life. Unfortunately, many children are improperly diagnosed and go into their teen years with a severe physiological/mental handicap.
A Possible Solution
Yoga can't permanently change anything; that's up to the individual. But in curbing addiction in young adults, yoga can be an instrumental tool. Millennials today are failing to launch with increasing regularity, and much of that has to do with the lethargy that comes from substance dependence. Without the drug, what's the point of life? With the drug, why get off the couch? Or, conversely, why concentrate on anything but having a good time? Yoga can help teens mindfully transcend this shallow mindset, facilitating successful launch.
