Banyen's Description: 

A concise but potent self-help book of easy, accessible meditation and calming techniques for teens and young adults to use when they are stressed, upset, or need to become more centered and focused.

In a very “cool,” friendly, and accessible way, this small gem of a book introduces meditation, breathing practices, and visualizations to calm the mind, become more centered and focused, and be less emotionally reactive. The author draws from his experience as an athletics coach, a mindfulness counselor, and a qi gong practitioner, as well as from Zen, to address issues and emotions that young people stress about—exams, social situations, self-doubt, fear, feeling scattered or unproductive, and sports performance, among others. Using these techniques for as little as three minutes a day, he says, young people can learn to feel calmer, happier, more focused, and more able to achieve their goals.

A person with a Cool Mind is not at the mercy of his or her moods, not pushing hard against the flow of life, and not losing control with wild displays of emotion…
 

Cultivating a consciously Cool Mind is, at least in theory, one of the simplest things you can do because you don’t have to think. In fact, it’s all about practicing the art of not thinking—or at least not thinking negatively—if only for a few minutes at a time…



Your Cool Mind is a calm place, and you can find it any time you need to!
