CNUSD Virtual Calming Room

We are operating in uncharted territory right now that nobody could have possible imagined or prepared for. Your CNUSD School Counselors want you to know that your feelings are valid, no matter what they are. You might feel scared, confused, overwhelmed, angry, alone, grateful, or completely calm. You might feel many things at once, like being upset that an event was cancelled, but happy that you can wear pajamas all day. Your feelings are normal; the situation is not. Don't forget to breathe.

  • Learn the life-changing skill of meditation.
  • Get more restful sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
  • Video lessons on mindful movement and gentle stretching.
