Abstract: 

Objectives: Evaluate the effectiveness of taichi chuan and mindfulness meditation on stress and quality of sleep among high school students of kanyakumari district. Methods: True experimental design was adopted. Simple random sampling technique was used to select the sample. Totally 80 samples, out of which 40 were experimental group I and 40 were experimental group II. Taichi Chuan was taught for experimental group I and Mindfulness Meditation was taught for experimental group II for weeks. The data were gathered and analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistical method. Results: In experimental group I, 55% were having no stress and 45% were having mild stress, whereas in experimental group II, 35% were having no stress and 65% were having mild stress. In quality of sleep, experimental group I, 65% were having good quality of sleep and 35% were having fair quality of sleep, whereas in experimental group II, 95% were having good quality of sleep and 5% have fair quality of sleep. The overall mean score (11.28± 6.47) which is 28. 19% in experimental group I whereas in experimental group II the mean score (10.78 ± 0.37) which is 26.94%. Paired t test value was 3.26 and 2.65 in both the groups. It seems that Tai Chi Chuan and Mindfulness Meditation were most effective in reducing non academic stress than academic stress among High school children. The Chi-Square test result shows that there is no significant association between high school children with demographic variables. Further research is required to determine the effectiveness of taichi chuan and mindfulness meditation with large samples and to identify their underlying mechanism.
