Talk to Your Thoughts
Draw a picture of yourself talking to your worry as a friend. Write down what you are saying to each other.
What is your worry saying to you? What is your worry’s message? What is your worry trying to help you understand? And how do you respond to your worry?
Choose your response
Maybe you thank it. Or give it a high five. Or ask it to leave for a while. Remember, our worries can be scary, but they are our brains’ way of trying to tell us something.
Quick Mindfulness Exercise
Get into a comfortable position. You can either sit or lie down.
If possible, keep your back straight so you can breathe easily.
Close your eyes (or find something still to look at).
Take a few moments to connect to your breath. Breathe in. Breathe out.
