In the story 'Mindful Bea and the Worry Tree', Bea spots her worried thoughts and feelings in her body.
Are there places in your body where you feel worry?
When Bea gets worried, she keeps thinking 'what if' different things go wrong. Are there times when you found yourself getting worried like her? Was there anything you found helpful?
