Worry buster! How to deal with nervousness

Have you ever felt nervous? Do Kudoz experiences make you feel worried?

Lots of us feel nervous before trying something different, meeting a new person or hanging out in certain places. In this experience, you and Quinn will build a plan to help you cope with worry and discomfort.

We'll talk about:

-Why human beings feel nervous

-How nerves can be healthy!

-What makes you nervous

-What strategies you use to cope

Then, you'll try out new strategies that you can use when you're feeling nervous. Together, we'll build your personal "nerves buster toolbox" and make a plan for how to use these strategies. If you feel comfortable, tell Quinn about your experiences feeling worried. She'll also share some of the things that make her feel nervous and how she deals with it.

If you want to, Quinn can come meet you at your house for this experience!

Reflection Questions
Think about the strategy toolbox we built. Which strategy will you try out first? How will you remember to use this strategy?

Once you try out a strategy, how did it go? What did you like about it? What did you not like about it? Would you use it again? Would you do something differently? What strategy would like to try next?
