Mind Over Matter

My 10 year old daughter will be taking her first meditation class this weekend (Thank you Suze Schwartz and Unplug Meditation!). I am turning to mindfulness  to try to help her learn to turn her brain off at night so that she can fall asleep - a years long struggle for her. Turns out mindfulness may have other medical applications, too. When it comes to treating ADHD and ADD, this promising study shows measurable benefits of mindfulness over drugs.
