Week 5 has come to an end. I hope you enjoyed the theme of Love Yourself! Helping kids build healthy habits and boost their self-esteem and discovered a few ideas to help your kids make healthy choices and be the best version of themselves. Below is all of the information that was shared this week!
Stress, anxiety and depression are costing the UK an estimated £70-100 billion annually. Being happy feels like something of a revolution these days. But the tides are slowly turning.
As more schools include children’s yoga in their classrooms, we wanted to talk about some of the benefits of kids’ yoga, from physical health to wellbeing.
How do we make mindfulness fun and practical for younger kids?
We all want our happy kids, along with being healthy, wealthy and wise; it is a pretty good aspiration to have for our offspring.
With the bullying epidemic taking a toll on children from grade school through graduation, self-esteem activities are more important than ever. These activities not only help bullying victims by boosting their own self-worth after a bad experience, but they can also prevent kids from becoming bullies in the first place.
A positive sense of self is an incredibly important part of being able to live the life that you want. If you look back at your own life and think of the choices that you made (or didn’t make), your self-esteem (or fear of not being good enough), was almost certainly at the very heart of that decision.
Has your child ever come to you with anxieties about fitting in? Or that being different from the other kids is a bad thing? Feeling out of place is a common fear and not one that is always easily soothed since it can be so tied up with self-esteem. I hope this latest addition to my books about feelings series– children’s books about being different –will be a helpful tool in talking to your kids about how being yourself and being unique is actually a really great thing.
Loving your body doesn’t just mean being happy with how it looks it, it means caring for it, moving it, feeding it and giving the attention it needs to thrive.
What’s the secret to sticking to a New Year’s resolution? Besides just picking a resolution, coming up with a plan of how to put your resolution into place in your lifestyle can put you on track for resolution realization. The plan provides motivation, an attainable goal, and hopefully a bit of fun.
If your child were being bullied, how would you know?
When children feel good about themselves, it helps to set them up for future success - in everything in their lives - from having great relationships, through to excelling at school.
I'm kicking off the theme with this sweet video that I've put together featuring local kids who answered the question: "What do you love about yourself" in support of the #LoveYourselfProject by Families UK. Many thanks to the awesome kids who participated.
