A Mindfulness Program to Help Teens Manage Stress, Regulate Emotions, and Improve Attention, Connection, and Communication
Being a teen can be really stressful! Stress and challenging emotions show up every day at home and in school. Depression, anxiety, and sleep and attention problems are commonplace, tempting many teens to experiment with drugs or alcohol. When this happens, our youth need tools to help them navigate how they are feeling, respond thoughtfully, and cope in healthy ways.
Mindfulness training provides a toolbox that helps youth build more self-awareness and cultivate inner resilience. It teaches them powerful skills to manage stress in healthy ways and navigate everyday challenges more effectively. More importantly, mindfulness practices help our youth develop healthy habits for a lifetime of wellness and happiness by teaching them to live life more fully with kindness, compassion, and curiosity.
This six-week series will teach teens how to manage difficult feelings, grow in self-acceptance, and improve their overall well-being.
