Here is a picture of my Introduction to Human Services class learning how to "juggle" life through tossing tennis balls to each other. Each tennis ball represents a different aspect of life. As life continues, students must learn to manage more areas in a healthy way. The students started the activity just tossing one ball (representing themselves), then more and more were added (job, spouse, child one, child two, etc.) Eventually, the students dropped the tennis balls. This represented the imbalance that life can have when things get stressful. After the activity, we discussed why learning about taking care of ourselves, families, relationships, jobs, etc. is so essential to a fulfilling life.
