Product Description

Contained herein is a one-page handout to help students who struggle with anxiety, nerves, or stress in the classroom. This handout teaches them an easy self-regulation strategy to better ensure their ongoing success by calming their nerves and anxiety.

Additionally, I have included a three-page article by Moran Cerf from November 2017 published online at Quartzy (available for for free here: https://qz.com/quartzy/1132986/) that explains and supports breathing techniques. I have found this useful for some students, parents, and teachers alike.

Do you ever feel stressed, nervous, or anxious in class? Maybe it's before an oral presentation? Maybe it's before a big test that you are nervous about taking. Well, this is a quick and easy strategy that can help to make you feel a bit better during those times. In fact, this technique can also help if you ever find yourself falling sleeping in class.

What this activity does is re-energize your body into sending oxygen-rich blood to all of your muscles that may have otherwise gone “to sleep.” Reintroducing oxygen into your body will wake you up, make you feel more alert, and can help calm down any nerves you may be feeling.

The activity takes about thirty-seconds to do, and when you are well-practiced, you can use it whenever you need to, without anybody around you even knowing!

In case you want to put this up on school monitors, present it on a website, or print it out in colour, I have created nine different coloured pdfs (including a standard black text on white background), for facilitating you getting the message out.
