The FYBS video series follows three puppet kids - Nico, CJ, & Mena - as they navigate everyday issues. By sharing the strategies they use to feel their best, the friends help each other work through big feelings and navigate problems. 

There are 13 videos: the first is an introduction to Feel Your Best Self. The remaining videos each share one strategy, which are organized within three themes. We suggest starting with Introduction: Feel Your Best Self. Then choose how to watch the strategy videos: start with the ones that look most interesting or watch them in sequence. It’s up to you!

Each strategy comes with a corresponding Strategy Card showing the steps as well as a Tip Sheet to apply it in your own life.

Have fun exploring Feel Your Best Self! And, if you are interested in learning about the making of the videos, check out our History page.
