Time needed: 10–15 minutes
Sometimes you get a stomach ache because you’re nervous. Or you might feel shy when you’re sad or have a hard time sleeping when you’re angry. Luckily, there are things you can do to feel better during these times!
Create a “happy place” with five things that make you smile. Find a box or bag. Fill it with your favorite books and toys, soft things to hug, or photos of happy times or people you love. The next time you feel worried or upset, get out your box or bag and feel the smile spread across your face.
