High School and College Years: How Mindfulness Can Help Your Sense of Well-Being and Clarity

Hybrid Class (in-person & Zoom options)


High School and College Years can be tough.  There is immense pressure on today’s youth to perform academically, through extra-curricular activities, and socially.  Technology and social media are worsening anxiety and depression in the recent decade.  Kids are at a loss, as are their parents, often.  Join Dr. Ann Friedman, psychologist and certified mindfulness facilitator, to learn mindfulness practices that can help you reduce stress, create a sense of wellbeing, reduce anxiety and depression and help you find clarity.

The classes cover the following topics:

  • Week 1: An introduction to mindfulness, quick practices to relieve stress, mindful eating and bringing mindfulness into the day.
  • Week 2:  Training the mind for more presence through breath, hearing, and body sensations as you sit and walk.
  • Week 3: Understanding negative thinking, cognitive distortions and biases and learning to let them go.
  • Week 4: Practicing self-compassion and compassion for others.

For the Zoom option: this livestreaming program can be taken from home or anywhere with an internet connection. If you register, you will be emailed viewing instructions either the evening before or the morning of the event. Please be sure to check “spam” and “junk” folders!

This class will not be recorded.

All times are CDT/CST. Please contact onlinelearning@junghouston.org with any questions.

Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.

Other Items to Note:

(Applies to both our Zoom online classes and the in-person classes at our studio)

Come as you are, and be comfortable. Some of our students may be in business attire, and others in workout clothes. 

Class is experiential and includes some teaching, as well as practices with discussion. No one is pressured to speak. 

We recommend that you arrive 5 minutes before class starts. If you are going to arrive late, that it is fine, but it is best to be on time to be respectful of the group. We understand, however, that things can happen beyond your control and we would rather have you come late than not at all. 

If you will miss your class, please inform the instructor.  You may make up the class the next time the series is offered; or you may take the entire next series again for free.  Alternatively, you can pay for a private make-up session. 

You are allowed to bring food and beverages. We do offer water, tea, and coffee at our studio. 

There is no need to take notes. Our instructors will provide summaries of each class as handouts (or sent via email).
