T’ai Chi is being taught in primary schools to help children overcome exam stress
It has long been known by those who practice T’ai Chi that it is an excellent way to reduce stress and try to get some balance back into a hectic life. There are always many elderly Chinese regularly practicing T’ai Chi in the morning in the parks around the city.
Interestingly, the UK Department for Education has announced the launch of a two-year research project in school, where children will be taught about mindfulness, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques.
The government hopes the two-year scheme will provide useful information regarding what mental health practises can benefit students in schools.
