DCSD Virtual Calming Corner

Welcome to the DCSD Calming Corner! We have gathered some links and resources to help manage emotions and feelings. Take a deep breath and explore!

Life can be challenging at times! The great news is you have the power to overcome these challenges by integrating purposeful pauses throughout the day to calm both your brain and body. Maybe you need a quick nature fix, a guided relaxation practice or some quiet music in the background. Enjoy it all and explore! Be careful, some of these links can be rather mesmerizing -- you may want to use a timer.
