Your Wiggle Warrior® Training:




First, give yourself a BIG HUG and then wiggle into it more. 

(Really, try it!)


 Next, brush off your arms like you’re trying to get cat hair off of your shirt.


 Next, pat your legs all the way down and up again.


 Next, make a circle in your hand for as long as you need. Try to make your circle go slower and slower, to the pace of your breath.


 And then to finish, lay down, put your hands on your belly and take 5 deep breaths.




Now ask yourself, “What do I need right now? What is one thing I can focus on to help me calm down? Is there any task that I can put aside for another day?


Take a ten minute break

to rest or ask for help. 


It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. 


Overwhelm is here to help you slow down and reset.
