Life can be tough, especially for teenagers. There is a mountain of pressures and responsibilities that young people face every day such as school, work, socialising, hobbies and social media. They are beginning to understand more about world politics and global warming and with this can come anxiety. Life can become overwhelming, and it can be difficult to cope with.
Nicola Morgan has created a guide to help young people understand that life has hurdles, and it is how we recover from these challenges that allow us to grow as people. The book explains what it means to be resilient and presents lessons and tools on how to become a more resilient, stronger, and more compassionate person.
Morgan presents the information clearly and concisely, in simple language that is easy to understand. She also creates imaginary human scenarios to provide relatable examples that allow the reader to gain perspective on daily anxieties in their own lives. The book also provides activities so that the reader can begin to practice the advice they have learned such as committing to writing a diary, taking on self-care practices, engaging in reflective thinking, and many more.
This book is an accessible and informative read that provides useful knowledge and tools to teenagers that will help them develop positive attitudes and resilient mindsets. I would highly recommend this book to all young people especially if they are struggling with pressures in their lives.
