Having a sharp memory is necessary for high academic performance, and practicing mindfulness can go a long way toward increasing students’ ability to remember their course material. A study in Psychological Science found that students who did mindfulness exercises had increased short-term memory. They were also less susceptible to distractions and had improvements in verbal reasoning.*

According to research in Consciousness and Cognition that compared study participants that practiced mindfulness meditation to those who didn’t, the mindfulness group had higher attention spans and cognitive flexibility.*
