LDS Meditation

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- Meditation...Answer to Test-Stress Syndrome???

Meditation has been used for centuries as a curative for many problems. It is a way of relaxing and developing clear thinking. Many students use meditation as a way to reduce test-stress syndrome as the end of semesters approach. Others combine meditation with prayer when seeking solace in their faith or as a vehicle for reflection and for other purposes such as gaining emotional control or improving health.

Students of the LDS faith view meditation as daily prayer and scripture reading, and as drawing from the world and gaining perspective. This aspect of meditation defined by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is also shared by many Christian religions. Although students don't tend to take on spiritual preparation while under the pressure of the semester closing, those who have roots in meditation continue with their practice as do those who pray and read scriptures.
