TAKE 5 is a University of Nebraska-Lincoln research based program designed for educators, wellness professionals, parents, community leaders, and anyone interested in guiding youth to better social-emotional wellness.

Certified TAKE 5 Teachers guide youth to:

• Learn techniques to self-regulate behavior and emotions
• Develop peace and stillness in the midst of chaos
• Quiet the mind to become more receptive to learning
• Build self-awareness and self-responsibility
• Improve confidence and self-esteem
• Reduce anxiety, depression and anger 


Through the use of breathing practices, concentration techniques, drawing/journaling, and exercise/movement, we bring greater awareness to body, mind, and internal conflict. Young children become more able to navigate the demands of our ever-changing environment.
