My Happy Place Worksheet


This worksheet allows children to draw a picture of a place that makes them feel happy that they can imagine themselves in when they feel anxious.


Why do you need this?

Drawing a picture of a happy place serves as a coping strategy for children experiencing anxiety. It provides them with a tangible tool to manage their emotions and redirect their focus to a positive and comforting mental space.


Visualising and imagining themselves in a happy place can help children regulate their emotions during moments of anxiety. The act of drawing and picturing themselves in a calming environment promotes relaxation and reduces stress levels.


How and when might you use this?

This worksheet can be used in a variety of ways:

· During social-emotional lessons focused on managing emotions, regulation, and anxiety. Students can draw their happy place and share their drawings with classmates, fostering a sense of community and empathy.

· During counselling sessions with students who experience anxiety. It provides a structured activity for children to explore their emotions and coping mechanisms in a safe and supportive environment.

· During mindfulness or relaxation practices.
