Finding Calm in the Storm: Intro to Mindfulness for Teens

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

What if you could reduce feelings of stress & anxiety, gain better focus, and even score better test grades, simply by breathing & being present?

Join us Tuesday, April 18th at 7pm at the Wissahickon Valley Public Library (Blue Bell) for this impactful 90-minute workshop, where we will:

-Learn what impact stress & anxiety have on your brain, and how mindfulness helps your brain manage these natural responses.
-Practice a series of mindful meditations that you can do on your own, either before or during a test, and any time you find yourself in a stressful situation.
-Have fun engaging in some mindful challenges to test what we learn.

For ages 13-18 (middle & high school students). Registration required and can be found here.
