Being a teenager can be very stressful. Mindfulness meditation can help teens learn how to become more resilient so they are better able to cope with stress and with life’s challenges.
Learning mindfulness teaches us to
- know the difference between actually experiencing life and being on autopilot
- offer ourselves kindness and acceptance
- connect with and better understand our thoughts and feelings and
- pause before automatically reacting to situations.
Research is beginning to show that students and teachers who practice mindfulness are happier, more focused, more compassionate, more emotionally regulated, and less impacted by stress (Zenner et al., 2014).
