Building resilience… one breath at a time

The teenage years can often seem like a thrilling yet terrifying rollercoaster ride. During this time of tremendous physical and emotional growth, huge life changes and intense academic and social pressures, teens often struggle to cope. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Our introductory workshop created specifically for a teen audience will teach evidence-based techniques for:
• coping with school pressures
• reducing the anxiety that comes with trying to fit in
• improving sleep
• making it easier to socialize and enjoy life!

See Discover Mindfulness’ Fact Sheet on how mindfulness helps the mental health and well-being of students.

Participants Will Learn
Learn on-the-spot-tools teens can use to deal with daily pressures, key skills to self-manage mood swings, and practical methods they can use to avoid over-reacting.

Who Should Attend
14 to 17 year-olds who want to learn tools they can use to deal with the stresses of daily life.
