Use This Poster to Reduce Anxiety
The graphic above has been floating around Facebook this week, and I wanted to share it with you because I love it. I am not certain about the original creator, but my research points to the School Counseling Resource Junky page on Teachers Pay Teachers. I'm including the link here because there several great posters and resource booklets on offer there.
This graphic represents the "circle of control." It demonstrates well the things we can control in our lives and the things we can't.
So often children (and adults too!) get caught up in all the things outside the circle, like past mistakes or the opinions and actions of others. But there is not one little bit about those things we can control. Instead, we are in charge of how we ask for help, how we treat others, how we treat ourselves, and how we respond to others.
I love how succinctly the graphic sums this up. If you'd like to display it somewhere in your home, here's the link to purchase a copy. The bundle comes with a couple of other helpful posters as well.
