Activities and tools

Try one of these activities or use some of the tools to help you feel better when you're feeling anxious, scared or sad.


Taking slow, deep breaths can help you feel calmer and more relaxed. You can try just one of these exercises or as many as you like. You might need to repeat an exercise a few times until you feel it working.

Try to take deep breaths so you can feel your chest rising. When you breath out, it might feel like you're slowly letting the air out of a balloon. You can close your eyes, look at something in the distance, or not focus on anything at all.
