from the back cover:

As a teen girl, you’re likely under a lot of pressure at home, at school, and in a confusing world of frenemies and social media. It can be hard to figure out what you really want to do and who you really want to be.

In this book, you’ll learn about the many benefits of practicing mindfulness, from reducing stress to improving relationships. You’ll be inspired by girls and women who use mindfulness in the visual and performing arts, sports, and STEM. Most importantly, you’ll try it yourself. There are dozens of different exercises and activities, ranging from fun ways to explore the five senses to strategies for coping when you’re feeling anxious or overwhelmed.

Practicing mindfulness can help you feel happier and less stressed as you grow into the woman you want to become. This book will show you how.
