Feel the glow and listen to the crackle of a fire. Give yourself a moment to reset and create a deeper connection to your body, senses, and emotions.

You can do this in any position that’s comfortable for you. For example, lying down or sitting. Throughout this activity, experience how each part feels. Be kind to yourself. Try not to judge or change anything. Just notice and be present. You can also change the activity in any way that feels best for you. You can experience the scene of the fire or its calming sounds. You can feel safe and grounded by imagining feeling its warmth and smelling its scent.

You can use it when you want to focus on the present moment, or when you want to experience another language. It’s important to reach out for help if you ever need support with stress or anxiety. You can always talk to a friend, Elder, teacher, or parent/caregiver for help.
