Nearly every student I encounter as a school counselor requires some instruction in stress management, frustration tolerance or emotional support. The goal of my calm corner will be to allow my students to have a safe and comfortable space to practice strategies that I introduce them to, including, but certainly not limited to, yoga, mindfulness techniques, deep breathing, and progressive muscle relaxation. These strategies are difficult to teach in hard back chairs at a desk. My students crave the freedom of a carpet to stretch out on, a chair to cuddle up in and a soft pillow to squeeze when discussing difficult topics. Discussing difficult topics such as peer pressure, grief and family struggles is not an easy feat, especially for an elementary aged child. We must continually strive to be innovative and provide students with the creative and individualized supports they need to be comfortable sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings. By donating to this project you are contributing to the emotional health and well-being of every student that comes to the counseling office for advice, a word of support or simply a hug!
