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.
