At this difficult time it is really important that we look after ourselves and each other. Mind.org.uk have shared this research on the Five ways To Wellbeing which has been developed by the New Economics Foundation and this will be the focus of our Whole School Blogs this week.
Continued learning through life enhances self-esteem and encourages social interaction and a more active life. Engage with the school Blogs, read a new book, try one of the websites on our Home Learning page.
Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Try to be kind to the people you are living with and see how this has a positive impact on your wellbeing.
Physical activity is great for promoting wellbeing. Even though we are staying indoors it is important to try and have regularly exercise. Have you tried the Joe Wicks workout yet?
Being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your well-being. Whilst we are currently living a slower pace of life, take some time to enjoy the moment and the environment around you.
Relationships are important and at this time we need to make even more of an effort to stay connected with our friends and family.
The main way we are doing this at school is by interacting on this website. Try to write a comment on the Blogs and the news posts so you can stay connected with your classmates and teachers.
Please look at the Whole School Blogs and get more ideas for how you can follow the five steps to wellbeing.
As a Catholic school, our faith is crucial to our wellbeing. During this period, and within the Year of the Word, we can take comfort in the words of the Bible , take time to practise our Christian meditation and pray to God. Remember to say our school prayer, keeping our St. Vincent’s family in our hearts.
Thank you for me,
Thank you for my friends,
Thank you for my family,
Thank you for everyone at St. Vincent’s.
Help us to be better friends,
Help us to be kind and caring to others
Help us to have a good education
Help us to follow God’s way.
Together through Christ we grow and learn.
