Secrets - they keep us unwell. “ Secrets cause us to ruminate. “ Many kids and teens keep secrets about their anxiety. They think they are the only person in the world with these fears. NOT TRUE!
The anxiety rate for 13-18 year old is 34%. That means 8-9 students per class struggle each day. Don’t keep secrets. Be courageous. Ask for help. ( these rates are pre- COVID.)
Take care of yourself. Nothing to feel embarrassed about. We are all doing the best we can.
Headspace guide to meditation on Netflix is awesome. I have been showing to students this week ( grade 4 and up). They like the animation and the explanations. - we are doing one episode per week with a shorter meditation. Can you imagine if you learned stress management as a child?!?? It is never too late to learn.
