Virtual Calming Room
A virtual calming room is a place where you can explore, enjoy, and learn techniques for calming down and managing your thoughts, feelings, and actions so that you can be productive problem solvers. When our emotions are high, it becomes difficult to think clearly and make good choices. By calming our body, our thoughts, and our emotions, we can think more clearly and make choices that are helpful! Please remember to use your guidance google classroom for more specific calming activities and coping skills. Also, you can fill out the form to speak with the school counselor if you need to problem solve and develop coping strategies. Click Virtual Calming Room to try.
