2. Daily Gratitude Practice helps children see the positive side of a situation instead of dwelling on the negative. By becoming more positive they will see solutions in stead of problems and move away from worrying about the the past and future, focusing more on the present and how they can be of greater service to themselves and others.
GRATITUDE MAKES US MORE OPEN TO RECEIVING, WE MOVE AWAY FROM BEING CLOSED. WE BECOME HAPPIER AND MORE CONFIDENT.
Journalling supports this shift to positivity as well as introducing a daily habit of writing and looking at our thoughts and behaviour. This practice fosters greater clarity and self-awareness.
You will get:
A 6-week Positivity Journal course with booklet for the children and resources for each of the 6 sections:
2. Good Things
6. Giving Back
Writing a journal can make us more aware (and self-aware) and help us detect previously unnoticed, unhealthy patterns in our thoughts and behaviours. It allows us to take more control over our lives and puts things in perspective. Furthermore, it can help us shift from a negative mindset to a more positive one, especially about ourselves (Robinson, 2017).
BEING MORE SELF-AWARE AND CLEARER ON WHO WE ARE AND WANT MAKES US MORE ASSURED OF OUR DECISIONS AND ACTIONS.
3. Bullying can make children feel like a victim. It undermines their self-confidence. This section gives them:
i. 5 practical steps to tackles bullying at school
ii. A basic understanding of how trying to understand the bully and being compassionate can help them - and the bully.
You will get:
i. 2 anti-bullying storybooks
ii. 5 practical tips and supporting resources
NOT FEELING LIKE A VICTIM. KNOWING WHAT TO DO, HOW TO ASK FOR HELP, EMPOWERS CHILDREN AND PREVENTS A LOSS OF CONFIDENCE.
Note from instructor:
We live in a very complex world…and it’s getting busier by the day. It’s no wonder so many children feel overwhelmed especially as they transition from primary to secondary school. These times of worry can have a negative impact on a child with lasting effects. An unhealthy body and mind impairs their capacity to learn, grow and experience life. This course provides tools that act as a child's compass steering them through the noise, and guiding them to make good decisions.
My fun and engaging storybooks and positivity journal are two such tools that move them away from anxiety, stress, bullying and negative self-talk, and prepare them for a life of positivity, gratitude, happiness, success and confidence.
