Stressed Teens – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T)

Stressed Teens, otherwise known as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for Teens (MBSR-T), is an 8-week class where teens will learn about the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle, simple and effective mindfulness practices, and realistic ways to incorporate healthy habits into their daily routine.

Mindfulness strengthens our ability to pay attention to the present moment; to notice our thoughts, feelings and physical sensations – with curiosity and without judgment. When inspiring awareness through mindfulness – instead of reacting Mindlessly, we react Mindfully!

Teens participating in this class will learn about the body-mind connection and how leading a healthy lifestyle can positively impact their physical and emotional well-being. Using mindfulness practices, they will gain practical skills and learn the value of:

  • regular exercise
  • daily physical activity
  • healthy nutrition
  • proper sleep hygiene
  • thoughtful use of technology
  • self-gratitude – self-compassion
  • stress-management
  • mindfulness and meditation

Your teen’s Quality of Life can significantly improve Socially, Physically, Emotionally, Cognitively and Academically when they choose to lead a consistent, healthy lifestyle!

*Stressed Teens (MBSR-T) has been demonstrated through research to be an effective and evidence-based intervention to reduce adolescent stress and the physical and psychological problems that result.

*Full and Partial Financial Scholarships Available!
