Hi, we’re Ellie and Alyssa. We had a crazy time last year camping at a national park near where we live. You can read about our adventure here, but right now we want to share with you some of the tools that help us be brave!
What they mean
Take a deep breath and relax when you’re feeling cross or stressed.
Sometimes writing it down helps to see things differently.

A friend can support and help you and you can try to understand others.
Awareness and presence
Feel the weight against your skin. It will remind you to be aware of what’s around you and how you’re feeling, to be present and not distracted.
Stops you from getting lost but also makes sure you make the right decisions. What’s the right thing to do in this situation?
A reminder to be who you are and to speak up for what you believe in. Like this quote from a Dr Suess book, “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
