When Santa gives a child a set of “special” coins and instructions on how to use them to feel better, kids pay attention.
The included instruction card explains that when one of Santa’s elves feels down, he gives them a special “comfort coin.” When you rub the coin with your thumb and say the positive affirmation written on it over and over, you begin to feel better.
I feel calm because I am calm
I feel brave because I am brave
I feel loved because I am loved
I feel wonderful because I am wonderful
This simple exercise combines the calming effect of repetitive motion with the positive effect of repeated affirmations – both of which have been demonstrated by research to help people reduce stress and feel better about themselves.
These make meaningful stocking stuffers, and their low cost makes them perfect party favors. Imagine Santa (or you) telling a room full of kids to rub their coin and say “I feel calm because I am calm.” It could be the most enjoyable party ever. Both you and the kids will leave feeling less frazzled, no matter how much ice cream they eat.
