Have a hug!
Sitting or standing, allow space for you to stretch your arms to the side. Breathe in, take your arms out to the side. Breathe out, wrap your arms around your body, giving yourself a hug. Now do this 3 or 4 more times. Can you feel that you could breathe deeper than on the first one? Did you like the hug?
Looking at the clouds
This can be done from the window sitting comfortably or you can take this outside and lay on the ground (if possible). Look up at the clouds. What shapes can you see? Are they regular shapes or can you make out animal shapes in the clouds? Where are the clouds going? Where have they come from? Are the clouds changing shape?
Balloons are bubbles
Pretend the balloons are bubbles and as they float in the air you must touch them very,
very carefully to make sure that they do not pop. Focus on the gentle movements you are making and see how being careful and quiet can make you feel calm.
You’ll need a raisin or chocolate button. Place it gently into your mouth and let it rest on your tongue for a moment. What does it feel like? What does your tongue feel like? What does your mouth want to do? What does it taste like? Take your time to chew it or let it melt in your mouth. Once you have swallowed it, smile!
This activity is for two people, so ask someone else in your home to be your partner. It promotes calm and the positive touch provides comfort.
Some people like to do this at bedtime as well as a game during the day. Before you start, decide what you will both be drawing. You could be writing letters or numbers;
(this is good for young children learning their letter sounds and numbers) or you could draw pictures, or write words. Whichever you do, pick a theme: it could be shapes, food, nature, animals, pets, countries, times tables, sports
- the list is endless! Now, sit comfortably, cross legged, with your back to your partner.
Close your eyes and relax into your position and think about where you are sitting. As your partner draws or writes on your back, focus completely on that, and nothing else going on around you. When your partner has finished drawing, swap over.
Colouring is a wonderful activity to all as it focuses the mind on the pattern in front of you. Your mind can be absorbed into the shapes and colours on the page.
These activities may require pens and paper or even a raisin or two! But most of them can be done with no equipment at all.
