Now fully revised and updated, including new and fun activities for dealing with school anxiety, social media overwhelm, bullying, and more.
Being a teen is hard enough without anxiety getting in the way. Not only are you changing more than ever before-physically and mentally-you're also facing an increasing number of global issues, such as pandemics, school violence, and climate change. On top of all these big events, if you suffer from panic attacks, chronic worry, and feelings of isolation, it can be very difficult to meet your goals and succeed. The good news is there are real, powerful ways that you can take control of your anxiety-and your life!
In this second edition of Mindfulness for Teen Anxiety, psychologist and learning specialist Christopher Willard offers teens like you proven-effective, mindfulness-based practices to help you cope with your anxiety, identify common triggers (such as dating, social media, or school performance), learn valuable time-management skills, and feel more calm at home, in school, and with friends.
You'll learn doable skills for dealing with specific situations that cause anxiety, such as public speaking, taking tests, meeting new people, and more. You'll also discover special breathing exercises to help you stay calm in moments of panic, and guided visualization exercises to be cool and collected, even in the tensest situations.
If you are ready to move past your anxiety, panic, and worry and start being your best, this workbook will be your guide-every step of the way.
