Name it to tame it

Sometimes our feelings become overwhelming and we can get stuck in them. In this 3-minute video, Lucy shares how to move on through those stuck feelings by getting more specific about how you are really feeling based on a technique originally created by Dr Dan Siegel.

Five deep breaths (or take five)

It’s easy to forget that one of the most powerful ways of calming ourselves down is by literally taking a breath. Learn how to calm your nervous system when you’re feeling stressed, anxious or upset with five deep breaths.

Finding the joy

Lucy is back with a video about finding joy in the every day, even the difficult ones.

Control the controllables

It’s easy to forget that we can’t control everything. Here Lucy reminds us that we can only control the controllables in our environment.
