‘The Balance Basket©’ is a tool that can be used to promote independent emotional and behaviour based balance for children both at home and in educational settings, bringing well-being into daily life by incorporating items that support physical, emotional, and mental health. The Balance Basket© offers support for children when they feel they need it, prioritising their self-care and creating a more balanced approach to their emotions and enabling them to identify their needs.
Having a physical reminder in the form of a basket filled with items that support emotional regulation, empowering beliefs and effective communication, balances behaviour without ‘blame, shame and guilt’, helping individuals to stay motivated and committed to their goals.
Overall, The Balance Basket© is a practical and accessible way to promote balance and well-being, which can lead to increased happiness, productivity, and overall quality of life. The items in The Balance Basket© can be customised based on personal preferences and needs, but the goal is to promote a balanced lifestyle and overall well-being.
