Throw It Out To Sea

If you live near an ocean or a river, you could try writing down all your problems, frustrations, or fears on paper, and putting it in a bottle to throw into the water. Or you could try burning the paper instead (but be careful where you do this, and be sure to have supervision if you need it). Destroying a written version of your problems can be the first step in being ready to overcome them.

Though don’t do this too much – we don’t want to be polluting our oceans! Maybe try pop it in the recycling instead..!

This is the coping technique that helped Zoe – read her story.

It’s important to find what works for you. If this doesn’t help, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to cope. See other ideas of things to try.
