A Still Quiet Place for Teens A Mindfulness Workbook to Ease Stress and Difficult Emotions by Amy Saltzman

Being a teen in today's fast-paced, media-saturated world is difficult, and it's easy to get overwhelmed or stressed out. This breakthrough workbook will help you balance your emotions, stay focused, and experience the natural quietness that lives within you. If you're a teen, you're probably experiencing stress. And is it any wonder? You're juggling schoolwork, friendships, and countless other activities. You get endless messages every day-texts from your friends, advice from your family and teachers, images from television, social media, and advertising about who you could and should be. Sometimes you just need a place to unwind and be yourself! A Still Quiet Place for Teens can be that place. It is a place of peace and calm within. In this workbook, mindfulness expert Amy Saltzman offers a comprehensive program to help you manage daily stressors and challenges in your life, whether at home, in school, or with friends. Using proven-effective mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques, this book will help you be fully present in the moment, cultivate kindness and curiosity toward yourself and others, and find constructive ways of dealing with the pressures of being a teen. Between school, friends, and dating, there's plenty to feel stressed about! This book will help you find a quiet place inside yourself that you can go back to again and again, no matter how overwhelming life gets.

Reviews

I love Dr. Amy s view of mindfulness and loving-kindness as skills which you can learn, practice, and hone and that the gift of mindfulness is something you can always give yourself, even in the span of just a few breaths. The book gives clear, simple, and relatable instructions and activities that ease you into mindfulness practice. I really, truly enjoyed A Still Quiet Place for Teens ; Dr. Amy s voice comes through so sincerely. I know the book is addressed to teens but I still feel like I personally got a lot out of it, and I think pretty much anyone I know, at any age, would benefit from reading the book and following along with the activities.
