Why is stress a problem in teenager's lives?
There are societal concerns about the growing numbers of chronically unhappy, hyperactive, depressed, lethargic and unmotivated children, now being seen by clinicians. In today's fast-paced society there are few opportunities for quiet, reflective time for teenagers where they can simply "be". Pushing teenagers too hard, too fast and expecting them to achieve too much can cause them to bur-out. Bullying at school has become rampant in recent times, as has the peer pressure to engage in substance abuse and over sexualised behavours at very young ages.
Teenagers are often left feeling lonely, inadequate, helpless and despondent - with no way to communicate this desperation to others. Making time to simply "be", where teenagers can slow down, let go of their anxieties and worries for a while, rejuvenate and replenish physically, emotionally and spiritually is one of the most important life lessons they can learn.
