Today’s teens face a unique set of stressors from social media, parents, schools, and society. From trauma and bullying to expectations and responsibilities, teens have to deal with stress coming at them from all angles.
To top it off, teens aren’t quite adults yet. They haven’t learned how to properly manage negative emotions, high-pressure situations, and responsibilities. Mindfulness teaches them not to ignore their emotions. Instead, it trains the mind to take a step back and process situations and thoughts before deciding how to act.
