My Stress Bucket


Stress bucket activity with explainer.


The “stress bucket” is a metaphor used to explain how stress accumulates and affects individuals. Imagine everyone has an imaginary bucket that represents their ability to cope with stress. Different stressors and challenges in life – such as work, relationships, and health issues – can fill this bucket up. When the bucket overflows, it can lead to negative outcomes like anxiety, depression, or other health issues. It can help you to understand your emotional limits and manage stress more effectively. The idea is to find healthy ways to empty the bucket, so it doesn’t overflow.

Activity to brainstorm stressors and identify self-care and coping strategies – can be used 1-1, group sessions or within the family home. Example included.
