Families faced so much change and uncertainty during the back-to-school season. That’s why JFS sent out packages filled with tools to help students calm their mind and promote self-awareness.
“For children who enjoy art, the process of drawing and creating can be powerful. Listening to music or writing in a journal can help children explore their feelings. Fidget toys and stress balls can help reduce anxiety and improve focus. There are so many different ways to calm our minds and bodies.”
These small but powerful tools go a long way towards developing kids’ mindfulness skills, which will help reduce anxiety, strengthen self-control, improve sleep, and increase positivity and self-esteem.
