Bathroom: Active Calming Icons
How to Use Active Calming Icons in the Bathroom
Active calming is an essential life skill, the key to the Power of Perception and the prerequisite for self-regulation. The four core calming activities used in Conscious Discipline are S.T.A.R., Balloon, Pretzel and Drain.
