The United States suicide rate is at a 30-year-high, and teens are facing more stressors than ever before – with social media, cyber bullying, and the pressure to be perfect. In Transforming Stress for Teens (August 1, 2016), leaders from the world-renowned HeartMath® Institute and Clemson University’s Youth Learning Institute team up to teach overwhelmed and stressed-out teen readers how to use proven-effective HeartMath® skills. These tools and techniques will help readers manage daily stress and anxiety and develop resilience by managing emotion. Scientists at the HeartMath® Institute discovered that your emotions affect your heart rhythms. The research showed that emotions such as frustration, anger, anxiety, impatience, worry, fear and sadness, for instance—the ones that drain your inner battery and that feel lousy—create a heart rhythm pattern that looks disordered and chaotic. That chaotic signal goes straight to your brain, causing a panic mode, preventing you from thinking straight. You can begin to recharge your inner battery by focusing on emotions that feel good to you. Emotions such as kindness, care, courage, appreciation, joy and patience create a smooth and ordered pattern in your heart rhythms. When your heart rhythm is even, you feel more centered, can think more clearly and have greater ability to handle the stressful situations with a lot less emotional drama. “At the heart of managing stress is how you respond to a situation,” the authors write. “Challenging situations, big and small, are a part of life, no matter how old you are. It’s how you handle those situations that counts.”
