circle of emotions & feelings
When we use words to describe how we're feeling, the emotional limbic brain calms down, supporting neural connections to the underdeveloped executive brain—the area that supports problem-solving and managing feelings more mindfully.
The Circle of Emotions and Feelings Poster is a visual tool that supports the older child with this process. Paired with a mindful-check practice (moving from autopilot to mindful awareness of one's inner world), use this tool to help build your child's emotional intelligence and emotional regulation skills.
MINDFULLY TAKING CARE OF ME FROM A TO Z

"I LIKE ME!" POEM AND SONG
"I Like Me!" is an invitation for children to practice positive self-talk and to be reminded of the beautiful way that nature reflects the strengths we all have within.
Paired with yoga poses to help calm and focus, and soothing music for relaxation, “I Like Me” was written by Jen Rapanos, a child and adolescent psychotherapist and owner of Well-Bean. Music created by Dan Rickabus.
I am brave like a mountain standing still
I am bright like the sun in the sky
I am strong like a tree that grows so tall
I am smart like the stars shining bright
I am gentle like rain falling down
I am kind, and I like me.
