Abstract

Mindfulness Meditation has become increasingly popular in treating a number of disorders, improving mental health and well-being and enhancing quality of life. More specifically, Mindfulness Meditation is effective in reducing stress among university students. Rather than the typical eight week mindful program, sitting mindful meditation is effective in reducing stress in university students. The goal of this literature review is to raise awareness of the benefits of meditation and to provide students with a guideline on how to sit.
