Adults are quicker to recognize feelings of anxiety, stress, and frustration when they arise, but children and teenagers suffer from these emotions, too, and in many situations, they are less equipped to deal with them and may even lash out in response.

Mindfulness practices are used by adults to regain focus and unwind during periods of internal strife, but younger people can also use these techniques to remain calm in stressful environments and scenarios.

This Monday, look to encourage the children in your life to embrace the concept of mindfulness. Although the idea may seem abstract at first, DeStress Monday has developed a number of tools that can help children, adolescents, and teenagers get a better grasp of how mindfulness practices should make them feel and can help them still their minds.
