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
- 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!
