What resources do we need transcript

What do we have?

Often there are things or people around us that can help when we’re facing a challenge. We can call these things resources: things, people or ideas that might be helpful to us. Here’s an activity to help identify your helpful resources.

You’ll need a pen and paper.

Draw a large box or bag in the centre. Imagine that this is your toolkit.

Now ask yourself what positive things can you put in there that can help you solve a challenge you have right now? This can be an object, a person, or even an idea.

Draw or write everything you can think of inside your toolkit.

Now think about how using what we have around us can help us to overcome challenges.

When you’ve finished, pause, and ask yourself – what have you learned? What might you do differently now you have done this activity?
