Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD: A Skill-Building Workbook to Help You Focus and Succeed




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?


MY REVIEW:

This book starts with three letters, one each to teens, parents, and professionals. It is just as the title say’s, it is a workbook to help teens with ADHD to be mindful in all areas of their lives. I honestly think that it is a wonderful workbook for any tween and teen, not just those with ADD/ ADHD, but for any tween and teen to help them keep on task. This book talks on many ways of organizing life that many tween and teen's don't have as they grow into adulthood because schools don’t teach it, and most adults do not have the time honestly( which is sad but true) My daughter is ADHD and I could see her wanting to do this on her own honestly because she wants to control herself but does not know how.  I am going to work with her this summer through this book so when she goes into 6th this fall she can go in with a clear mind and ready for what is to come.
