Teens and young adults today are facing greater mental health challenges than ever before. Whether sensory overload from electronic devices, cyberbullying, or academic pressures – they are in dire need of education in self-care.
Participants will learn how to help teens cope with and manage stress and bring mindfulness techniques and practices into their lives. These skills will help teens to become empowered to take control of their well-being, increase self-esteem, and live life with renewed hope and enthusiasm. As youth make these simple, accessible, mindfulness and self-care practices part of their routine, they will discover little life-hacks to bring immediate relief and ease to get through even the toughest days. Acquiring skills to choose to focus on positive experiences aka ‘Taking in the Good’ will bring build beneficial lasting benefits.
