By focusing on the things you can see, hear, smell, taste and touch, you can calm your mind and help direct your attention away from thoughts that might be causing you to feel anxious or unsettled.

If you're wanting to relax your mind, grab a grown-up and try this yummy activity.

What to do

Make your hot chocolate

Ask a grown-up to boil the kettle and pour the hot water into your hot chocolate mix. Stir it up and add your marshmallows!

Use your senses

Notice the sounds around you - the spoon while you're stirring or the rumble of the kettle. Take in the delicious smell and taste of your drink.


Sit somewhere comfy and enjoy your hot chocolate. Treat yourself, you deserve it!
