Ways to help cope with change

Poem about Change

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what you see, smell and taste. When you notice what is happening around you, you focus more deeply. It can help you calm down when you are sad, angry or frustrated. Mindfulness helps you deal with tough emotions and can make you happy and feel good. It creates space between the emotions we have and then actions we use to respond to them.

 

Have a look at the videos and mindfulness activities below which you can try with your child.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Grounding

Grounding is a skill that can help us deal with unwanted emotions and thoughts. Grounding helps bring our mind and body to the present moment. It helps you focus on the here and now by using your five sense, distracting your mind and redirecting your thoughts.

 

It is so simple and can be done at any time any where. All you need to do is ask your child to name:

  • 5 things they can see
  • 4 things that you can feel/touch right now
  • 3 things you can hear
  • 2 things that you can smell now (or name 2 smells you like)
  • 1 thing you can taste (you could replace this with tell me 1 good thing about yourself)

 

Watch the video and then give it a go.

Belly Hike

By taking time to focus on a smaller patch of life and give it our fill attention we are being mindful and respectful. This helps calm our nervous system, our brains and help us feel happier.

 

Watch the video and then give it a go.

 

When you feel you have looked at everything within reach, gently turn yourself around and do the same exercise again. Did you find more there than the first time? What was different? Or maybe it was just the same.

Everyday Heroes

How many Superheroes can you think of?

What are their superpowers?

Do you have to have super powers and wear a costume to be a hero?

We can all be heroes in our own special way because we are ‘Everyday heroes.’

We do things every day to help and look after people and our environment.

Just because we don’t wear capes and special costumes doesn’t mean we are not ‘super.’

We are ‘Everyday heroes’ because……….

                 We aim to set a good example for others.

            We treat others with respect.

We try to always be positive and smile.

We do our best to get along with everyone.

We say nice things to others.

We share what we have to bring happiness to others.

We are responsible for our rubbish and look after the environment.

We are kind and patient.

We help people in need.

We make sure that no-one is left out.

We encourage others who are feeling down.

We treat others how we’d like to be treated.

We say ‘thank you’ to others who help us.

We show gratitude for what we have.

We help each other learn.

What is your Everyday power? Write it on a piece of A4 paper, make it big, bold and colourful.

 

Ask an adult to talk a photo of you holding your power and send it to

homelearning@whitecourt.essex.sch.uk

 

What would happen if we didn’t use our everyday hero powers?

What would the world be like then?

 

Everyday Hero

Sing along and think about how you are a everyday hero.

We are all extremely grateful to the NHS and key workers at this time. We have also been thinking about other things in our lives which we are thankful for.

Being Thankful

Still image for this video
What if we woke up tomorrow and only had the things we expressed thanks for today?

Secret of Saying Thanks

The heart that gives thanks is a happy one, for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time. The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for. And the more we find to be thankful for the happier we become.

Reflective thoughts

 

Think of three people you would like to write a thank you letter to. Who are they and what would you say? Write those letters and make someone’s day!

 

Can you name three things that you are grateful for or three things that made you smile today?

 

Why is it so easy to forget the many things we are grateful for when we discover something new?

 

How can we remind ourselves to be satisfied with the good things already in our lives? 

Make a thankful jar. Everyday write down one thing you are grateful for or that has made you smile and put it into the jar.
