If you could do one small thing each day to improve your overall well-being, boosting everything from your level of happiness to your immune system, would you do it?

In this 3-minute video, Jon Kabat-Zinn, a pioneer of scientific research on meditation, shares some interesting facts about the benefits of meditation, in addition to his belief that teaching it to our children will one day become as important as any other essential life skill.

What do you think about teaching meditation to children from a young age? And if you’ve had some success in teaching your little one this transformational practice, please do share whether you’ve noticed any differences in them.
