With so much uncertainty in the world right now, we all need to look after ourselves a bit more. That includes making sure we relax!
Keeping a Journal
Keeping a journal is a great way to track how you are feeling. Writing down our thoughts and feelings helps us recognise connections between things that happen, and the way we feel. Try writing in a journal every day of half term!
Dance to your favourite music🎶
Sometimes, putting on your favourite song can bring you out of a low mood and help you feel happier! Dancing on your own is fun because no one can see you, you can look as silly as you like.
Go for a Nature walk
EVERYONE will tell you how good it is to get outside for fresh air, but it's true! Being connected to nature helps us feel awake and alive! Getting outside is a great way to lift your mood and get some fresh air.
Write down 10 different things you are grateful for. Being thankful for simple things that we take for granted puts our lives into perspective. We are able to zoom out of just thinking about our own lives, and think of others.
Write a not to someone you love💌
We can send messages on our phones and computers that people will receive in seconds, even if they live half way across the world. But when was the last time you wrote someone a letter? Receiving a letter in the post is a great feeling, because someone has thought about you enough to go to the trouble of sending it. Can you think of someone who would love to receive a letter or card from you, just to cheer them up?
Try a new exercise
Exercise can get boring if you don't change up the way you do things. YouTube is full of fun exercises you can try at home. From Pilates, Yoga, High Intensity work outs, and more. Try something new!
Read a chapter of a book
You may be a bookworm or absolutely hate books or be somewhere in between. Reading a book and taking time away from a screen can give our thoughts a chance to rest and be lost in a book.
