Aww, Did Someone Say Exit Strategy Again? (Part IV)

In previous posts, we discussed the importance of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for children and strategies they can use to exit the red, yellow and blue quadrants.  In this post, we will discuss some strategies they can use to get themselves out of the green quadrant.  Again, this essentially means giving children the opportunity to recognize how they feel and then offering children strategies to exit any mood they get in.  

Green Quadrant: 

What feelings are exhibited?   The green quadrant is for pleasant, low energy feelings like calm, relaxation, serenity, contentment, and balance.

In all emotions, children need to understand that it’s normal to feel the way they feel but if it hampers their productivity, then they need to learn strategies to exit themselves from those emotions.  

Some might think that everyone should stay in these feelings of low energy like calm, relaxation and serenity.  But in all facets of our lives, staying in a relaxation and serenity state might not always be conducive of productivity.   There are times in our lives that we need to have high energy and exuberance.  No stage should be permanent as we maneuver through life. Whether it be exercise, dancing, gymnastics or karate, each child needs to find their niche to help them navigate through each emotion.
