- Take 5. Girl Guides of Canada offers this great “Take 5” activity as part of their Mental Health Awareness Day packet for leaders. In it, they use icons to explain these ideals to girls:
- It’s never OK to hurt others. It’s never ok to hurt others physically, emotionally or be destructive to their property no matter how big our feelings are.
- Take three deep breaths or count to 10 slowly. Take a deep breath slowly, hold while you count to 10 in your head and then let it our slowly. Repeat two more times.
- Use words to say how I feel and what I wish to happen. Be clear with your words.
- Ask for help to solve/deal with the problem. Find someone you trust and who can help you. Explain what you need from them or be clear in what you need help with.
- Take time to calm down. Walk away. Do something else for a while. Take some time to be active. Come back to the situation with a clear head when you are calmer and start again.
