Sample text

Now, your calm, relaxed color fills you all the way up to the top of your neck. Next, you decide to join a bubble-blowing competition. Imagine that you have a piece of gum that’s bigger than any piece of gum you have ever chewed. Chew as hard as you can to get the gum ready to blow bubbles. Move the gum around. Feel it stretch your cheeks. Now, spit it out and take a break. Relax your cheeks. Push on them with your hands to feel how loose they are. Now, chew your gum again. It’s time to blow your big bubble!

Breathe in…hold…and let it out slowly. Pay attention to your breathing…slow, calm, and gentle. As your heartbeat slows down, your body gets more and more relaxed. Next, start to imagine a place where you would feel completely relaxed and peaceful! Let’s start with where this place is. Is it a place in nature or indoors? A big, open place or a small, cozy one? Does your place look like somewhere in this world, or is it in a made-up world? Keep imagining what this place looks like. What do you see around you?

All of you helped me to see the connection between anxiety and imagination, which led to my first book, Anxiety and the Gift of Imagination, and eventually to this workbook. I want to thank my coauthor, Crystal Clarke, for her dedication and thoroughness in this project. She was on board with the imagination/anxiety connection even before we began our collaboration. Crystal’s keen understanding of how children think and what will capture their interest and imaginations was integral to the quality of this workbook.
