Reminders for the Hard Days
Do you experience depression? This colourful list combats lies about our worth, and reminds us that our feelings aren’t final. Create by Wholehearted School Counseling, this is a great list to print out if you want to practice self talk, and rewrite the lies you believe about yourself.

What Triggered Me?
Have you experienced emotional response to something and don’t know why? Situations, words or memories can trigger emotions that link to past trauma. And while they may be small or insignificant to other people, they set us into a fight or flight response. Next time you experience a heightened emotional response to an every-day event, go through this list and ask what it triggered for you. Curated by the Gottman Institute, and drawn by Self Love Rainbow (formerly Blessing Manifesting), this is an excellent resource for relationships as well
What Emotions Feel Like in The Body
You are more than happy, sad or numb. This wheel of emotions by Lindsay Brahman helps us identify what we are truly feeling. Work outward in, and trace your behaviour to your emotion. Or, start with happy or sad, and go on a journey. This is a great resource for parents or caregivers, because you can build your child’s emotional literacy and regulation. But don’t just keep it for kids – this wheel gives you language to better understand yourself, your spouse and your friends as well!
