For Teens & Preteens

Looking at a stack of weights, you'd understand that those tools are used to build muscle strength and positively affect your physical health. PAUSE is for building strength of the inner self, to better handle stress and anxiety along with the symptoms that grow when left unchecked.

In a recent study One Third of Ontario Teens surveyed (10,426 participants) reported to have moderate to severe psychological distress, an increase of 10% in less than 3 years. Survey from Centre of Addiction and Mental Health 2015

Pause addresses the common aches and pains of growing up and the emotional stressors that come with it. So many of today's kids living in Toronto are experiencing high levels of stress. Many are living with anxiety, insomnia, headaches, muscular tension and the emotional impacts, without realizing they don’t have to. Pause gives kids a holistic toolkit for stress management.

PAUSE is built on a series of scientifically backed components that effectively alleviate stress, anxiety and create focus and coping skills

Every element of Pause, has been curated to work synergistic between all parts. One form enhances the other in an "entourage effect", giving flow and support in each segment.
