Imagine there’s a bucket you carry with you which slowly fills up when you experience different types of stress.

Sometimes you feel strong enough to carry a lot of stress, but it’s important to find activities which help you lighten the load.

These activities will help ‘drain’ your bucket and release your stress.

These activities could include:

  • Rest and relaxation – watch a film as a family
  • Talking to trusted people – a parent/carer
  • Doing something you enjoy – start an art project
  • Good time management – finishing all work at a set time and then put it away.
  • Time with others – Make a meal with someone in your family.

Be specific for what works for you!

Have a go at completing your stress bucket.
