Grounding Exercises

Grounding exercises that use your senses help to reconnect you with the present moment and separate you from distressing emotions.

Deep Breathing

Also known as Belly Breathing or Abdominal Breathing is one of the best ways to lower stress in the body. When you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax.

BIG Hugs & Squeezes

BIG hugs help promote relaxation by lowering levels of cortisol ("the stress hormone") and releasing oxytocin ("the cuddle hormone") in your body.

Emotional Expression

Talking about their feelings can help kids stay in good mental health, by reducing anxiety and easing depression. Expressing emotions also makes decision making and problem solving easier.

What people are saying about the soothing snuggler...

I didn't realize how awesome [it] was! I mean, I loved the idea ... but actually seeing and hearing and watching my son makes things real and amazing!

Brooke M.

What a cool way for children to connect to their emotions. Recently, our district has adopted social emotional learning inside the classroom. I'm interested in how the [Soothing Snuggler] can be used with students.

Miranda S.

I've worked with children for 40 years ... something like this has been needed for a long time!
