This is a wonderful book for teens of all ages about how to not allow ourselves to be run by the current of the culture and take back our minds and lives so that we can grow up to be whole adults.
Teens today are overstressed and overwhelmed. Many of them experience panic attacks and they wish they had more control over themselves and their emotions. But life doesn’t let them do that at all. Somehow they are always plugged in, and their lives are stressed out and overly busy despite the fact that this is supposed to be the best part of their lives.
There is no doubt, the teen years are really stressful. There is peer pressure, the insistence to get high grades, and doing more and more extracurricular activities, filing every moment of your day. But is this really the way you want to spend your teen years?
Then there is the stress of dating and finding the right boy. There is the stress of making sure that you meet someone who will not take advantage of you over and over again.
Then there are the financial problems. Since many parents have a difficult time making ends meet, teens have to start work earlier, putting even more stress on their lives, increasing their anxiety levels.
In this book, Dzung X. Vo, MD, FAAP, offers sound advice to ensure that teens live a much more mindful and stress free life as possible. The simple and easy-to-remember tips in this book can be used every day to help you handle life’s toughest situations.
I recommend this book to all teens of all ages! It will transform your life.
