Butterflies in My Stomach Anxiety

Butterflies in My Stomach Anxiety


When we feel emotions we might think about them in our head, but first we feel them in our bodies. When we are afraid our heart races, when we are angry our muscles tense up, and sometimes when we feel certain feelings we feel butterflies. "Butterflies" are a child-friendly explanation for the tension we feel in our gut when we feel anxious, afraid, nervous, excited or anticipatory. Talking to children about their butterflies helps them to: understand that we all have "butterflies", learn about why they are there, and learn new ways to "calm the butterflies". This bundle includes 3 pages of information on the butterflies, where they come from, and how to calm them, plus 4 additional pages of worksheets to use with children. Perfect for therapists, school counsellors, psychologists, teachers, or parents supporting children experiencing anxiety.
