Getting Better

For the past few yearsI have been encouraging (pushing) kids to use meditation.

A lot of drug/alcohol use is because kids don't feel OK, stressed, disconnected, unloved, angry etc.

Drug/alcohol use doesn't make us feel better, it makes us feel less so we actually end up sliding further into the emotional ditch.

Mindful meditation can help us relax, resolve stress, sleep better, reduce depression, reduce anxiety.

My practicum student, Diandra, sent me this link to

"Smiling Mind"

it is an app that has online meditation programs for everyone from 7 years old to adult. If we are looking for ways to improve mental health this is the type of thing that is going to make the most difference for the most people for the least amount of money.

Please check this out.
