Why Mindfulness For Teens?

Teenage is a time where children are growing up and face many challenges physically, socially and psychologically. This is the age where transition from being a child to an adult begins where they seek answers for questions related to their identity, independence, future and more. During this time they also form a sense of self. 

Teenagers can face challenges due to peer pressure, puberty, addiction, social media, studies, relationships, friendships, career choices and their social environment. In our sessions, our objective is to help teenagers deal with these challenges by being centred, aware and mindful. Mindfulness practice helps teens build emotional resilience, provides tools to deal with overthinking and helps create a feeling of calm and clarity. Inculcating mindfulness facilitates acceptance of whatever is occuring in life right now, and lays the foundation for developing unconditional acceptance of oneself and eventually of others.

The sessions are based on the book- “You are Simply Perfect” written by Sadia Saeed. 

What Is Mindfulness?

session on mindfulness for teens

Mindfulness is a wonderful practice of being aware and connected to the present moment. If you sit quietly with yourself a few times in the day, you will notice that the mind is always chattering about something or the other. We spend a great amount of time engaging with this chatter and miss out connecting with the actual experience of the moment.

The practice of mindfulness helps in rewiring our attention in such a way that we stay more connected to the present moment experience. It is a gentle practice filled with non-judgment and compassion. 

A lot of our stress comes from thinking  about something that happened in the past or worrying about the future. Practising mindfulness results in an unconditional and restful acceptance of the present moment. It helps create more space for joy, resilience, peace and clarity of mind.
