Abstract

The study aimed to investigate whether college students who practice meditation have higher academic performance, and satisfaction of participation in higher education, than college students who do not practice meditation at all. A cross-sectional design was employed. 156 participants partook in the research, by completing two questionnaires: The Self-Reported Academic Performance Questionnaire, and The Achievement Emotions Questionnaire. The results demonstrate that regular meditation is significantly associated with higher academic performance, and higher level of satisfaction of participation in higher level education. The regular meditative group scored significantly higher than the non-meditative group on all presented measures. These findings suggest that by engaging in regular meditation college students may significantly improve their academic performance, and experience in academic setting. College students and higher level institutions should consider the broader applications of these findings, as regular meditation may be a practical technique for college students to improve academically.
