Teens will use the techniques of mindfulness to intentionally focus awareness and observations of their own emotions and behaviors from moment to moment. Teens will learn how to accept all emotions, to let go of negative self-judgements, the differences between helpful and unhelpful ways to cope with stress, methods for doing tasks/homework mindfully, strategies for mindful stopping/taking time before reacting, and the differences between self-care and being selfish.
