I have now put together a “soothe kit” for my first aid kit that I keep in my rucksack when leading walks.  After an experience last year when a customer/walker was hiking with us and had a panic attack.  At the time I feel very unprepared for such instances.  I engaged in a mental health awareness course and now have the tools (mentally and physically) to deal with these situations to ensure the safety of everyone.

One item in my soothe kit is a distraction tool.  Puzzles exercise the left and right sides of the brain simultaneously, they are a mental workout that improves problem-solving skills and attention span, doing puzzles reinforces connections between brain cells, and improves mental speed.  The brain struggles to cope with more than one task at a time, so this a great distraction tool.
