Mindfulness can start at any age, and Change to Chill has the right tools and activities to help anyone take a moment for themself, whether that means hitting the gym or taking out a box of colored pencils. Our mental health resources are designed for teens and their mentors to help them get better sleep, develop a support system, practice gratitude, and ultimately, adopt better daily habits.
By increasing awareness and balancing school and life, teens can gain a sense of calm amidst the chaos of school deadlines, family pressures, part-time jobs, extracurricular activities, and more. So, whether you’re a teen looking for tools to help you relax, or a mentor seeking activities for your teens, find all of the Change to Chill DIY activities in one place.

Relax in the Virtual Chill Zone.
Seated pigeon – improves mobility
Cobra – releases pressure in the spine.
Dolphin – stretches the upper back and shoulders, hamstrings, calves and foot arches at the same time.
Frog – improves strength of connective tissue around the ankles and knees, which makes it a great warm-up movement prior to lower-body exercises.
Supported Backbends – they very lightly stretch tight spots, while giving athletes a chance for deep relaxation, which speeds up recovery.
Reclined Big Toe – strengthens the knees and can target the IT band (a common tight spot in runners) and can relieve backaches and sciatic pain. Using a band/strap makes it accessible for everyone.
Boat Pose – increases abdominal and hip flexor strength.
Bow Pose – stretches the front of the body, improves posture and strengthens the back muscles.
