- To identify what makes you feel safe so that you can calm down and tackle changes in a better way.
- Dealing with change
- Managing negative factors in life and work
- Paper and colouring pens or paint
This activity helps participants to identify a safe space where they can be calm when there are many changes in their life. It helps to calm down and recover from stress, which can make them analyse the changes in a better way.
The trainer presents this activity:
Think back to a time or situations that you felt safe. It can also be a person that makes you feel safe.
- You can look in your phone and find inspiration about your safe space. Find the picture that is most important for you and make you happy. Write or communicate in other way what that photo made you feel and the story behind.
- You can also paint or draw a place where you feel safe. There can also be colours that make you happy. Write or communicate in other way what that photo made you feel and the story behind.
- You can also describe in writing a situation that made you feel safe
This can be a place you retreat to when life is chaotic and messy.
Everybody should present their work in a plenary session.
