Jessika Farrell, aka Jessika The Prankster became social media royalty as a result of her funny prank videos involving her mom, Momma Redd. The teen, who has evolved into a prominent figure for so many young people, is now using her platform to advocate for youth mental wellness. Jessika the Prankster has dropped a new journal to help teens process their feelings.
With the mental health spotlight on both Naomi Osaka and Simone Biles recently, talking about feelings has become more prevalent. This journal is nothing less than timely to aid as a therapeutic and healthy tool for teens to process their feelings.
According to the Barnes & Noble website, below is a brief synopsis of the In My Feelings Journal.
The In My Feelings Journal was designed by a teen just like you to help you collect your thoughts and process your feelings.
The journal contains:
- 90 days worth of daily prompts to get you writing
- 90 affirmations to keep you inspired
- Inspirational artwork to color any way you like
- A list of helpful resources for teens
This journal is YOUR journal. This is a safe space where you can express whatever you want however you want it. How you’re feeling, what you’re planning, doodles, or just whatever random thoughts you have. Your journal is what you decide to make of it – somewhere to get organized, vent, express yourself, keep memories, and get in touch with your feelings.
Jessika The Prankster started publishing videos in the summer of 2018. The talented teen has garnered 2.1 million followers on Instagram, 2.5 million on YouTube, and 3.5 million on TikTok. Everyone wants to see what Momma Redd has to say next.
According to the American Psychological Association, via the Mental Health First Aid website, “More than nine in 10 Generation Zers (ages 15-21) said they have experienced at least one physical or emotional symptom because of stress, such as feeling depressed or sad or lacking interest, motivation or energy.”
Below are five tips for teens, per Mental Health First Aid, to help them take a break and deal in a healthy way.
1. Get enough sleep: Getting enough sleep helps you grow and develop normally. For teens, this means about 8-10 hours each night.
2. Focus on your strengths: Take some time to think about what you’re good at and ways to do more of those things. By focusing on and building your strengths, you can keep your stressors in perspective.
3. Do things that make you happy: Find activities or hobbies that make you happy and incorporate them into your daily life. This might be a physical sport, an artistic outlet or spending time with family and friends.
4. Get physical: Engage in physical activity. Exercise takes our mind off stress and releases chemicals in our brain that make us feel better. This can be anything from a stroll in the park to a bike ride or basketball game with friends.
5. Talk to someone: It can be hard to manage stress alone. Talk to a parent, teacher or other trusted adult about your problems and they may be able to help you find new ways to manage your stress.
