Mindfulness can help teens to become more connected to the present moment. Social media, school, and social stressors can increase anxiety in teens. Teaching teens healthy ways to manage stress and anxiety is key to helping them cope well. Being constantly stressed is not healthy for your mind or body, and practicing mindfulness provides a way to live an overall heathier and more present life. Try challenging your teen to practice a 10 minute mindfulness exercise for 30 days straight!
