Why Students At Elite Colleges Are Turning To Meditation

Many students are experiencing increased pressure within their university life. Meditation and yoga work fabulously at relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

"Wellness programs are becoming increasingly important as students today face an overwhelming amount of pressure and stress at school. And that takes a toll on mental health. Nearly one in 10 college students report experiencing symptoms of depression, according to 2014 research from the University of California, Los Angeles.
