Benefits of Koru Mindfulness

Students who practiced Koru Mindfulness were found to be:

  • Less stressed;
  • More mindful;
  • More rested; and
  • Reported greater self-compassion.

Kent State faculty and staff can use these skills for themselves and also help their students become more mindful and better manage stress.
