Overcoming Anxiety for Teens

Alive Center - 500 West 5th Ave Naperville, IL  RSVP here and  Tix and info here

Anxiety is a feeling of fear, nervousness or worry about the future and leads to stress responses in the body and the behavioral urge to avoid. Believe it or not, anxiety is not all bad. In fact, there is wisdom in anxiety. It is our brain's way of being a little overprotective of our body. We know that parents can have various rules to help keep their kids safe, which can sometimes feel limiting. However, parents and kids can ideally work together to build a balance - and similarly, our minds and bodies can work together to bring more balance to our emotions. We will talk together about how to do this and listen to the different challenges students face, in order to lead more courageous, purposeful and meaningful lives.
