Writing down your feelings is good way to see how you feel. Having to write gives your thoughts somewhere to go. By writing down your feelings you are thinking about how you feel making your thoughts clear and easy to understand.
If you are not able to understand what you have read, try writing out how you feel again. By doing this two or three times, your brain will be much happier as you have made your thoughts very small and easy to think about.
Talking can be hard as you need more time to talk to someone. Ask your parents, or a friend if you can talk to them. Next time you want to talk about how you feel, try it in this way.

2.Once you have stopped talking, ask them if they can repeat back to you what they think you said
3. If you think they didn’t listen and got what you said wrong say, what you want to say again.
4. keep repeating steps 2 and 3 untill you feel the person listening can explain how you feel in a way that you feel happy about.
5 If you feel the person listening can explain how you feel, Well Done! You have made yourself feel better!
Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose. Keep your shoulders relaxed. Your abdomen should expand, and your chest should rise very little.
Exhale slowly through your mouth. As you blow air out, purse your lips slightly, but keep your jaw relaxed. You may hear a soft “whooshing” sound as you exhale.
Repeat this breathing exercise. Do it for several minutes until you start to feel better.
