I hope you are all managing to stay safe and well during this strange time.
It has been lovely to receive your emails and see pictures of the work you have been doing. I am missing you all so I love hearing from you.
Some things you can be doing to stay positive and healthy during this time are:
Stay active. Try Joe Wicks, BBC Supermovers, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Dance Classes with Oti Mabuse, and many more.
Get outside as much as possible. Try to take advantage of being allowed out for a walk once a day and get some fresh air.
Do something positive—Do something for someone else. Write a letter to a friend, a neighbour or a relative, bake cakes for someone, collect donations for a good cause, etc.
Learn a new skill—Try to do something you haven’t done before, such as knitting, sewing, crochet, wood work, jigsaw puzzles, sign language, a foreign language, etc. Completing some school work will also give you a sense of achievement and help you feel that you have used your time wisely.
Connect with others—This is more difficult in this time but try to make use of modern technology, if you are able, to reach out to friends and family. You can also phone or write to friends and family.
Practise mIndfulness— There are lots of apps and youtube videos designed for children to help you practise mindfulness. Other activities such as colouring are good for absorbing yourself in something.
Please do email me if you have any questions or concerns. I am always happy to help and love hearing from you.
