Happy Friday everyone, our last ‘Fun Friday of the school year 2019-2020!
Today is all abut our wellbeing and taking some time out of what has been a hectic, rollercoaster journey over the last few months. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Wellbeing and Mindful Friday June 19th 2020
As we make our way towards the finish line of the school year 2019-2020, it may be time to pause, take a moment and reflect on the turn of events that took place.
It may be simply time to breathe.
This has NOT been easy for anybody. Each and everyone of us has travelled a unique journey in unprecedented times. None of us received a handout or preparation or survival guide along the way…..but you DID survive!!!!! Applaud yourselves, acknowledge how hard it was and still is in many ways, but you DID it and so DID your children. Take a bow!!!!
So today is all about the well-being of your family.
We have a selection of activities today- a menu for you to pick and choose from. Let’s imagine that we are dining at our favourite restaurant and choosing a three-course meal. We hope there is something for everyone. We can choose a starter, main course AND dessert.
The first document I direct you to is called ‘Mindfulness for Children’ and has been designed by Mrs. Trína Cooney. Let’s imagine this as a ‘Starter Menu’ It tells us what ‘mindfulness’ is and guides us through some relaxing activities such as Mindful Breathing, Mindful Eating, Mindful Playing and Mindful Music.
Why not select one activity from this document as your starter.
Our next document has several options – from this you can choose your main course or your ‘main activity’. This is called the ‘Well-being Friday’ document.
Choose one (or more) of the activities here to create a feel-good factor to your day.
Finally, as if we were having a delightful 3 course meal, why not choose a ‘dessert’ activity from either the ‘Mindful Colouring in the Graduation Quotes’ or the ‘The Mindful Jar activity’.
Choose as much or as little for this day but remember:
As always, if you wish to share some of your ‘mindful moments’ with us don’t hesitate to send them into firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a lovely weekend, everyone and we will see you next week for THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!!!!
