For caregivers who have young people that struggle with anxiety, the creation of a personalized Anxiety Relief Tool Kit can make a world of a difference. These kits place relief at your young person’s fingertips wherever they may be.
When put together in a thoughtful way, they have the ability to help a person stay in control of their anxious symptoms. Your young person’s kit can be a small bag that they keep in their purse or backpack. It can also be a box or a small mint tin. Really, it can be whatever they want it to be. The point is to keep all of the parts together in an easily accessible space.
They can make multiple versions of their Anxiety Relief Tool Kit and keep them in special places like their desk at school, the car, or anywhere else they frequent.
Everyone can have a toolkit, including young children. Helping a child to put together a toolkit that they can use at home, in school, or in any other setting that causes them anxiety can be a powerful way to empower them to cope with their anxiety and set them up for success when dealing with anxiety as they grow into young adults.
In order to make an Ultimate Anxiety Relief Tool Kit, your young person will need to make sure they have something to engage each of their senses.
