High Zone Reactions in my Brain: Social-Story
Sometimes I may feel angry, frustrated, confused, or stressed.
When I have these feelings, I may think about a lot of things.
It can be hard to concentrate.
Sometimes when I have these feelings, I may have trouble thinking about anything else.
When I feel this way, it means I am moving to the high end of my resilient or "OK" zone.
It is hard to meet my goals when I am in the high area of my zone.
When I am high in my resilient or "OK" zone I can use skills to help get back to the middle.
I can try taking deep breaths, going for a walk, or drinking some water.
I can talk to a person I trust to think of more ways to get back to the middle of my resilient or "OK" zone.
