Get focused, the mindful way! In Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD, a clinical social worker offers powerful skills based in mindfulness and neuroscience to help you succeed in all areas of life—at home, in school, with friends, and beyond!
As if being a teen wasn’t tough enough, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make everyday life even more difficult—from struggling in school to relationship troubles with family and friends. When you just can’t focus, life can get lost in the balance. And to make matters worse, you might also feel stressed or have trouble sleeping and eating well. So, how can you gain focus and start feeling better right away?
In Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD, a clinical social worker offers fast, easy mindfulness skills to help you successfully navigate all the areas of life, including making good choices, completing tasks, increasing academic success, excelling at sports, driving safely, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and more. By paying attention to the moment, you’ll find yourself less distracted and better able to focus on what’s going on right now—whether it’s an algebra test, a job interview, or an important conversation with a friend.
The mindfulness activities in this workbook will also help you build self-awareness and practice self-reflection—key skills to succeeding in life! These skills will help you start feeling more focused, less stressed, and gain confidence in your ability to reach your goals. So, what are you waiting for?
