Suggested Use

SUNCards can be used in home, clinical, and educational settings. Here are some suggestions for how to use our cards.

  • If you are actively feeling anxious, select an Action Card and use the technique to try to calm yourself. You may find that multiple cards will be the winning combination. Once you are calm, select a Sunshine Card to give yourself a boost of confidence for a job well done.
  • If you want to practice your coping skills, select an Action Card and think about a time when this technique would be helpful. It might be something you recently experienced for the first time or a worry or fear that you deal with often. Practice the technique so that when you are actively presented with your worry or fear you can recall the technique to calm yourself.
  • If you are feeling a little down and need a boost of confidence, select a Sunshine Card and read it out loud to yourself. Staying in a positive frame of mind may help you ward off some of your anxious moments.
