Choosing to focus on positive experiences has beneficial lasting benefits. Acquiring skills in mindfulness techniques will help young people feel empowered to take control of their well-being. Making self-care practices part of their routine, teens will discover life-hacks that bring relief. Biegel's teaching will help students increase self-esteem and live with renewed hope and enthusiasm.
