Creativity and mindfulness are also important.
In this section there are some creative and mindfulness activities for you to have a look at any time if you would like.
Activity 1: Place your hand on your stomach. Take 10 deep breaths and notice your hand moving up and down as you breathe.
Activity 2: Sit very still and notice one thing that you can see, hear, feel, taste and smell.
Activity 3: Close your eyes and think about how you are feeling. Happy? Sad? Mad? Scared? Excited? Another emotion? Think about how you know you are feeling this way.
Activity 4: Sit quietly and place a small object in your hand. A pencil, rubber, or something else. Notice how heavy the object is. Think about what it feels like in your hand. Notice a new thing about this object.
Activity 5: Do some mindfulness colouring.
