Circles of Control Craft to ease Worry
Students will enjoy this calming zen activity that helps them distinguish between things that they can control and those that they cannot control. This will help them with relieving worry and anxiety as well as managing anger. They will learn to "color outside of the line of control" while practicing "letting go" of things they cannot control. Once they learn to refocus on the things that they can control, they will feel more overall self-control. The focus of this craft is to develop a positive mindset about life and to learn to let go of things that are not worth worrying over. This craft is very useful for helping students who suffer with anxiety and anger.
