Here's some weekly practical tips and skills from Wyndham City Youth Services to help you with a little self-care.
Healthy Mind Mondays: Pop Its
Pop Its are the new in thing for a lot of kids, young people and even adults.
Out with the fidget spinners and in with the pop its. The good thing about little items like these is that they can really distract you when you need it.
This allows you to concentrate on the task at hand and can keep you occupied for ages, helping lower feelings of anxiety.
These are great sensory items that can be used to calm people. Sensory tools promote regulation, improve focus and increase participation which can help with learning when used in schools
Overall sensory tools can help us to self-regulate which helps us in our daily lives.
