Help older kids and teens identify how anxiety feels in their body with this free video game themed anxiety warning signs worksheet. They can color in the signs that they recognize in their body.

Sure it's important for kids to be able to name and recognize emotions, from anger to anxiety and everything in between. But it's even more important to help them identify and recognize the signs of those emotions in their own body. 

Being able to recognize those signs or symptoms in the early stages can mean that they use a coping strategy, if needed, sooner. That in turn can help reduce meltdowns. Or, in the case of anxiety, that might mean avoiding a panic attack.

However, I know that if I were to ask my anxious son to describe how his body feels and name his anxiety symptoms, that it would be a tough task for him to verbalize. Yet, give him a written list with a variety of options and the task will be significantly easier. That's what it's like to play into his hyperlexic learning style though.

Anyway, I paired it with an interest of his - video games! - and voila, it's the perfect fit for him. So yeah, that's where the idea for this video game themed anxiety warning signs worksheet came from.
