Relaxation Toolbox: Tailored Techniques for Every Age Group

Keep in mind that I could probably list relaxation skills forever. Moreover, what works for one person might not work for another person. You could even have some skills that work one day and not the next. So, it's good to have a mix of skills.

There are many videos I could choose for several of these skills so go ahead and do some research for yourself!

This blog post is organized first by the type of relaxation skills, then organized from most child-appropriate to most adult-appropriate. Enjoy!
