Being a teen can be really stressful!
Common symptoms of stress that many teens face include problems with concentration at school, feeling nervous in social settings due to heightened self-consciousness, i.e, social anxiety, feeling tired or overwhelmed. Experiencing negative thoughts, procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities and changes in sleeping habits or eating habits.
Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress. The mind and body are closely connected, and stress can affect the mind and body negatively.
