I have added resources which help support emotional wellbeing particularly during this uncertain time where we will all experience different emotions and will have different ways of coping. It is normal to feel a range of emotions and these can change throughout the day. It is important that these emotions do not become unmanageable.
Self-regulation helps to manage emotions and behaviours when faced with a situation that is difficult to handle. Finding strategies that help to self-regulate are important to calm us and support us to face problems or situations with a clearer, more positive mindset.
Mindfulness helps us to pay attention to the present moment and can improve mental wellbeing. It can positively change the way we feel about life and how we approach challenges. Many of the resources focus on this technique.
Remember to keep talking to an adult at home about how you are feeling. It is important to offload any worries or negative thoughts. Being able to express ourselves aids our emotional wellbeing.
I will add resources regularly so please continue to check this section.
