ACTIVITIES AND RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS TO ENCOURAGE POSITIVE SELF-TALK
What do you say to yourself? We all have the negative voice in our head that tells us everything we do wrong or perceived wrong. But we also have a positive voice that we need to listen to far more than the negative thoughts and "what ifs". Try to give your attention to the positive and affirming thoughts about yourself and not the negative ones. You will be surprised how much better you will feel. Check out these positive self talks, affirmations and growth mindset activities, print them for free. (Click the Image)

Just Add Water
Need a pick me up? Run a bath, take a shower, water the garden, water the plants! Get outside and find a stream, a lake, a puddle, stand in the rain, have a hot drink, have a cold drink, splash your face, cry it out, laugh until you cry, go through the car wash, put your feet in the ocean, smell the salt water, envision a stream in the mountains, the options are limitless. Just add water....It works 99% of the time.
