Being a teen can be really stressful! The teen years are full of challenging changes, both mentally and physically. If you’re like many teens, you may have difficulty dealing with stress in effective ways.
Are you dealing with stress at school in the form of pressure to get better results and be involved in more extracurricular activities? Are you worried over school and homework?
Are you suffering from stress at home, perhaps because of family demands, arguments, and expectations?
Are your relationships with friends, schoolmates, or loved ones stressful and overwhelming?
Do you feel as though things are spinning out of control and you cannot stop worrying?
Maybe you are experiencing pain and health concerns?
If you learn a few strategies for getting stress under control now, you will have the skills you need to deal with problems and difficult feelings throughout your whole life. Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress, find balance, and live life more fully.
Mindfulness is all about living fully in the present moment and noticing what is happening right here and now. It is a skill that makes you aware of your thoughts and feelings in the present moment.
The Mindfulness Program for Teens is a six-week course designed to help you reduce stress, improve your attention, manage your emotions, and gain greater control over your thoughts and actions. By attending this program, you will discover the natural power and peace that is always inside of you.
The program will help you deal more successfully with common challenges experienced in school, including extracurricular activities and relationships, and help you live a happier, more fulfilling life.
Mindfulness Program for Teens
The program is a teen-friendly, developmentally appropriate six-week intervention for adolescents (ages 12 – 15 and 16 – 18) who are experiencing stress and stress-related symptoms. The program is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course developed in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
