The first month back to school can be exciting and challenging for young people and their care takers and having a plan in place can help everyone feel prepared to take on this transition.
Here are a few points from our Meticulon Assessment Service Bundle to consider when managing stress:
- Outline a routine and have a calendar of events so everyone knows what’s happening next.
- Engage in a daily mindfulness practice that works for you.
- Identify challenges and triggers and develop a toolkit to manage your needs. This could include a physical or mental anchor to help you self-regulate such as squeezing a stress ball, taking a sip of ice water, or repeating a mantra.
We recognize stress can affect anyone and having supportive tools in place is helpful for all.
