Maya Angelou has been a constant inspiration and guiding influence in my life. Today, on her birthday, I’m honoring her words and her courage: "Without courage we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”
Great techniques for children AND adults battling anxiety. The article advises trying techniques 2-3 times prior to deciding if it works. We would add that trying them for the first time when not feeling anxious is beneficial (allows the body and mind to connect the technique with calmness).

Not only are these useful techniques for helping children self-soothe, they work for adults too!
