Tackling Low Self-Esteem(continued from page 1)
If you aren't that good at some sports, find another activity that you can enjoy and even be passionate about doing like dancing, hiking, or yoga. Find something you can love doing and do it!

Parents. What you do and say has a big impact on how your teens see themselves and what counts in their world. How are you modeling good self-care for your teens? Are you modeling negativity? Or, are you taking care of your body with foods and activities that encourage good health and feeling good about yourself?

Eating right


Talk to a trusted adult or a good therapist

Consider art therapy

Eating Right. As you begin to love what your body can do, consider taking better care of it with improved nutrition. Lowering fat while increasing whole grains, fruits and vegetables (such as in Dr. Rowley's “3-4-4 Nutritional Method”) can help you love your body by giving it the very best fuel. You will soon take pride in the difference good nutrition can make!

Exercise. Exercise can help to relieve stress, tension, improve your mood and help you to feel good overall. By expelling your excess negative emotions and
adrenaline through physical activity, you can enter a more relaxed, calm state of being from which to deal with the issues and conflicts that are causing your anxiety. Exercise is one of the most important coping mediums to combat anxiety and stress. Exercise increases blood flow to the brain, releases hormones, stimulates the nervous system, and increases levels of morphine-like substances found in the body (such as beta-endorphin) that can have a positive effect on mood. You will feel better because your body will be stronger and more lean.

Talk To A Good Therapist Or A Trusted Adult. At Cayenne Wellness Center, we understand that sometimes including the creative process as part of getting and staying well can be a big plus for teens who don't want just one more adult telling them what to do.

Consider Art Therapy. With art therapy, visual expression offers a vehicle for shared and clear understanding of thoughts and feelings. Art therapy can help join emotional health with self expression that feels more natural to the creativity teens long to express. Our newest staff member, Dr. Gayle Callaghan, has been working for 20 years with children, couples and families using both clinical art therapy and traditional psychotherapy methods. If you are worried about yourself or someone you hold dear, we would welcome your call and discuss how to assist you toward a more successful, meaningful and satisfying life.

Contact Cayenne Wellness Center at 818-377-5120 to request an appointment. We are now open 7 days a week (Monday through Sunday).
