Practical Methods for Calming Anxiety from the Comfort of Your Home #motownmom
Given our current circumstances, there is a thick fog of anxiety and uncertainty floating about. Some children are hearing information from friends, in school meetings, on TV, or maybe even overhearing adult conversations at home. Information is gleaned and stored away in those amazing little brains. It’s what happens with that information that can sometimes be concerning. Age appropriate discussions may help them manage their feelings and give them the tools to deal with these feelings in constructive or positive ways.
Anxiety rears its head in a variety of different ways. Being home, in close quarters and comfortable, you may see it in full force. Anger, grief, what if’s, checking, and worry are all pretty common. Anxiety is broad and may cause or worsen some of those natural feelings. Take it in stride, slow your roll, and give them the safe space they need to feel. Most of all, give them unconditional love!
Here are a few ways to take the edge off and add some peace to your days.
