Worry Sometimes we are happy and we don’t have anything to worry about. Other days, we can feel worried about something. We can worry about things we are a bit scared of, like the teacher asking us to read in class, whether we will have friends to play with, or whether our family is getting along. When we worry so much that we have trouble thinking of anything else, this is called anxiety. Anxiety can do things in our body, like make our tummy feel yucky, our heart beat fast, or it might be harder to breathe. It is normal to worry sometimes, but if you worry so much that it makes your day difficult, or your sleeping difficult, it can be helpful to let someone know. You can also work hard on teaching your mind to think about what is happening right now, instead of what might happen later. You can also play games to use up some energy, spend time in nature, listen to music, or make a drawing. There are lots of things that can help.
