Feelings Check-in Toolkit

Ideas for understanding how you're feeling


Reminder: Feelings are feelings. All feelings are OK. The important bit is how we manage our feelings


  • Feelings can be hard to make sense of. You might not even know why you feel a certain way.

  • Feelings are simply feelings. not good or bad , just feelings.

  • All feelings are OK. You can be furious, or sad, or worried. You are human and like everyone else you’re going to experience all sorts of emotions in your lifetime.

  • Being unhappy, angry or worried is fine. It becomes a problem when you can’t stop feeling like that for no obvious reason.

  • What is good to remember is that while feelings are OK; it’s what you do with those feelings that really matter.

  • We want you to be able to cope in the best possible way.

  • Remember we are all unique and special. We ALL feel emotions differently.

  • Taking a moment to check in with how we are feeling can help.
