What to Do When
We can have many different feelings.
Some are comfortable which help us feel good about things.
Comfortable feelings feel wonderful,
They are feelings like when we are happy or joyful.
There are some other feelings that we might have,
They are uncomfortable like when we are sad.
The uncomfortable ones are when we are blue,
It can be hard to know what to do.
Because there will be days when we feel down,
Instead of a smile, we wear a frown,
We might feel a little blue,
Or sometimes mad, sad, or even lonely, too.
Feeling down can be different for everyone,
It can make it hard to have fun.
Feeling upset can be tough,
It can make us feel a little bit rough.
How Does It Feel?
When we are feeling unhappy,
Alone we might prefer to be.
We might feel like having a cry,
Or maybe we sit and sigh.
When we are upset, we might be a little scared,
It could feel as if no one cared.
We can also make us feel ready to blow,
Like a giant, sputtering volcano.
Everyone can feel a different way,
Remember to feel your feelings is more than okay!
How Can We Feel Better?

Feelings can sometimes feel like a big hill to climb.

Play with a pet dog, cat, or bunny.

To help you feel like the wonderful you!
