Create a Peace Place
Work together to create a quiet space in your home where children can relax, think, and reflect on their feelings. Encourage children to put things in the Peace Place that help them feel calm, such as comfortable blankets and pillows, books, stuffed toys, colouring supplies, or photos of loved ones.
Breathe in slowly and deeply. Imagine that you are filling your body up with air like a balloon. Then breathe out slowly. Let all the air out of your body. Notice how calm you feel after breathing deeply. Keep doing this until your strong emotions have passed.
Let It Go
Close your eyes and think about all the muscles in your body. Wiggle all the muscles in your body one by one, starting with your face and moving all the way down to your toes. Breathe deeply and try not to think about anything at all. Squeeze your whole body tight for three seconds, then let it go with a big, loud sigh. Squeeze all the muscles in your body tightly one by one, and then let them go with a big, loud sigh each time. Take three deep breaths and slowly open your eyes. How do you feel now?
