    Even if it sounds simple, just taking two deep breaths calms you down. I also recommended reading 📖 my book recommendations: roof toppers by Katherine Rundell, Bad dad by David walliams, the worst thing about my sister by Jacqueline Wilson and Bleak house ( kids version ) based on the novel by Charles dickens illustrated by Barry Ablett 🤓😊

  26. you can draw your feelings by scribbling or go out in the garden for a walk or if you don’t have a garden you can go to the park. You can also do star jumps and run around the house to try to forget about the thing. If you have a worry you can imagine it inside a big bubble and blow it away. Or you could imagine a big machine making your worry go away.

    We like listening to music and reading a comic or a book. When we play football, everything else goes silent. Louis thinks staying in bed makes things worse, Milo likes it.
