Settle Your Glitter

Sometimes kids need help calming strong emotions. This app guides you through a deep breathing exercise that allows you to regain control of emotions and shift focus back to the task at hand.
The app will walk you through identifying your emotions, rating how strongly you are experiencing them and then using the glitter ball to settle.
Settle Your Glitter can be used to teach kids about their brains and about managing emotions. When the glitter is settled, we are calm, focused in our prefrontal cortex, able to make good decisions and do our best learning. When the glitter is swirling, our amygdala is in charge and clouds our judgment. Breathing and focusing attention helps us settle our glitter and fully access the thinking part of our brain.
Shake up the glitter, match your breathing to Puffy the puffer fish and feel yourself become more focused and settled. You are ready to dive into your next challenge!
Settle Your Glitter is inspired by Susan Kaiser Greenland’s Glitter Ball activity. Read The Mindful Child by Susan Kaiser Greenland and visit her website at http://www.susankaisergreenland.com/inner-kids.html or visit www.momentousinstitute.org.

Return of the Glitter
Hi Everyone, thank you for the feedback and staying with us while we addressed the issue causing the glitter to disappear.
Please enjoy our latest version 2.6
It was working great but then froze on 'shake' screen. Restarted it, reinstalled it - didn't work. Hopefully the problem is solved soon.
I'm an adult and I use this app often. It really does help with when I have a panic or anxiety attack. I love it!
