I Minute Sand-Timer 

You can hold the 1-minute hand-timer and watch the sand fall to the bottom while you:

Resisting doing a compulsion, like not washing your hands, not checking on something, not asking for reassurance, not making something straight and so on... 

Which ritual could you resist doing for one minute?!

It can also be used for putting on your shoes, putting on your coat, brushing your teeth... and lots of other things besides... 

Hmm, what could you get done in one minute?

Caring Carol says when you can do something in 1 minute be proud of yourself and put a sticker on your sticker chart!

3 Minute Sand-Timer 

You can use this for doing the following things:

Resisting doing a compulsion for two minutes, like in the description for the 1-minute timer! Or you can turn it over and do a 6-minute exposure, like Johnny

Which compulsion could the yellow sand-timer help you with?

It can also be used for quick chores or putting your school stuff in your bag... there are loads of things you can do in 3 minutes... 

Hmm, can you think of something you could do in 3 minutes?

Caring Carol says grab a sticker and put it on your chart when you can do something in 3 minutes or 6 minutes!

10 Minute Sand-Timer 

The green sand-timer gives you 10 whole minutes for resisting compulsions. 

This is a good time span for starting exposures on your ERP hierarchy

Why not get a pen and write down your hierarchy and see which ritual you want to start with?

This green sand-timer is also great doing chores like taking out the trash or washing the dishes!

What could you do to help in 10 minutes?

Caring Carol says grab a sticker and put it on your chart when you can do a chore that you might not have done before... you could surprise your grown-up and head towards a bigger reward!
15 Minute Sand-Timer 

You can use this for doing the following things:

Resisting doing a compulsion for 15 minutes, like in the description for the other timers! You can turn it over too for a 30-minute exposure.

When you can do a 30-minute exposure you can use it again to make a 45-minute exposure, and then again to make a 60-minute exposure! 

You can also set this timer for doing longer chores, like tidying up your room! 

Or why not think of something else you could do in 15 minutes! 

Remember to get hold of your stickers and stick one your chart when you can reach your goal!
30 Minute Sand-Timer 

Imagine what you can do in 30 minutes:

This is ideal for holding in your hand during a 30-minute exposure. Watching the sand fall to the bottom can help you be Mindful during ERP homework tasks between therapy sessions with your therapist; or for when you practice your recovery goals with your grown-up.

When you're ready to do a 45-minute exposure you can take the purple 15-minute sand-timer and add it to your exposure time, and then again to make a 60-minute exposure! 

You can also set this timer for doing longer chores, like tidying up your room! Perhaps you can think of something else you could do in 15 minutes too! 

Remember to stick a sticker on your award chart!

60 Minute Sand-Timer 

Can you imagine what you can do in 60 minutes?

You can practice a 60-minute exposure, and when you can do this with much less discomfort you will have reached your main goal for not giving in to rituals! It's great for calling time on your shower times, delaying washing your hands, shelving problems until later instead of ruminating on what-ifs... and so on.

This dark blue 60-minute sand-timer is helpful for practicing mindfulness without doing exposures too, because it can be soothing just to watch the sand fall to the bottom?

You can stand it on your table to encourage you to do your school homework!

Caring Carol says you deserve a sticker on your award chart... Oooh, I wonder what your extra reward will be!
