WELLNESS TIP OF THE WEEK:
 
Anxiety differs from person to person.  It can be debilitating or merely be a slight flutter of the stomach.  Regardless, learning how to cope and be supported when feeling anxious can be useful strategies to prevent anxiety from disrupting day to day life functioning.  Below is a book recommended for parents to help their children reduce the effects of anxiety in their child's life.


"This book is a practical resource to begin to take steps to reduce the effects of anxiety on the life of your child. Strategies are very applicable to people of all ages, and can be helpful in many settings to a variety of people experiencing anxiety, but this book is geared towards parents helping their own children. The book is easy to read and understand, with advice on explaining concepts to children of different ages. Digital workbook accompanies the book with reproduce-ables you can use at home."
