Healthy Minds

 

During this time, you may be feeling bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious, or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you.

Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave so it’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body.

Here are some activities to help keep you feeling positive. 

 

The Power of Kindness Calendar.

Use the kindness calendar to think about the importance of being kind.  You can record daily acts of kindness on the calendar and review what you have achieved at the end of each week. There are 10 activities to help you get started but you can add your own.

Online Resources

Supporting children’s mental health - Harold’s Daily Diary  Harold the giraffe is posting daily Ideas for creating routines and the different things that children (supported by parents/carers) can do to keep happy and healthy – including looking after their emotional health. This is going down really well, particularly with younger children. One of our SCARF-using schools has even used it as the basis for a virtual literacy lesson.
 
Support for parents and carers   We’ve increased the amount of content on this new part of our website. This now includes sign-posting to online safety resources as well as ways of helping children cope with anxiety caused by COVID-19’s impact.
