Learners participate in circuit stations to practice self-regulation of mood.
Talk yourself into making a fit choice!
Say: Let’s be actors! Use your face and body to show your feelings and emotions.
Feelings and emotions put you in a mood, and your mood influences your choices. Your mood is either “I will”—I will make a fit choice—or “I won’t”—I won’t make a fit choice. Stop and think about your mood right now. (Allow learners a moment to reflect on their mood.) Is your mood "I will" or "I won't"? Whether it is “I will,” or “I won’t,” you can make healthy choices to manage your mood.”
The number one thing you need to know is when you stop to recognize your mood, it gives you the power to manage your mood.
Today we are going to practice recognizing different mood and making healthy choices.
