Concept: Mindfulness

I am learning to concentrate on what I am doing without talking

I know I can do it when I can go for a mindfulness walk without talking

Mindful Walk

You are going to go on a mindful walk. You can do this in your home, your yard or around the street. Make sure an adult goes with you if you are leaving your property.

To work mindfully you need to walk without talking.

See if you can find 3 things you have not noticed before.

When you come home you like might to put on some relaxing music and draw a picture of what you saw.

Social Connectedness

I am learning to keep my social connection with my friend/s during lockdown

I know I can do it when I can contact a friend and keep in touch

While we are in lockdown we are not able to go to friends’ houses or have playdates. It is possible and important for us to stay in touch with our friends and keep our social connection with them. This will help our well being and keep us feeling happy. People have been coming up with lots of creative ways to do this. Some ideas are listed below:

  • phone calls                           
  • video calls                            
  • text messages
  • letters                                   
  • emails                                   
  • photos
  • a walk with a friend            
  • play in the playground

Make sure you do all of these activities in line with lockdown restrictions

Independent Task

Choose one of the methods above and contact a friend. You may want to contact a different friend each day or just once. Do what suits you best. You might like to write or draw about what you did and how it made you feel.
