D - Distraction Tequniques
Having distraction techniques can help you to focus on something else when you're in a panicked, anxious or distressed state.
Although it may seem like a difficult thing to do, it cam become a useful and healthy way of coping with a situation.
Were are some ideas that you could try out or ask your close friends and relatives to do with you when you need support:
- Counting things around you
- Doodling or colouring
- Counting backwards from 10, then from 25, then 50
- Focussing on your breathing
If you feel like you need support with your wellbeing, or the wellbeing of your child, please speak to a member of staff.
Don't forget, that children can go to Mrs Torrington's wellbeing drop in every Wednesday lunchtime.
