FAMILY ACTIVITIES: BACK-TO-SCHOOL ANXIETY
Create a kit with items that help you calm down when you feel anxious.
Take a small box (not bigger than a shoebox).
Decorate your box with your favorite colors, stickers, etc.
Ideas of items to insert into the box:
- Smell: choose a soap bar \ mist bottle \ essential oil
- Visua: hotos of people or places you like \ coloring book \ favorite book or poem
- Touch: anti-stress ball \ fabric with your favorite texture \ plush doll
- Taste: sugar-free gum
- Sound: create a playlist of your favorite relaxing music
Keep the box in your room where you can easily access it in times of need.
