Meditating before lectures leads to better grades

In a news release on April 9, 2013, George Mason University has reported meditating before lectures leads to better grades.
Ramsburg, the lead author of the study and a practicing Buddhist, has said, “Personally, I have found meditation to be helpful for mental clarity, focus and self-discipline. I think that if mindfulness can improve mental clarity, focus and self-discipline, then it might be useful in a variety of settings and for a variety of goals.”
