This week's word is gratitude!
Explains what Gratitude is & how to have an Attitude of Gratitude. Children learn that they have the power to choose their thoughts & determine how they feel...
It can be hard to feel happy all the time - and in fact, it would be weird if we didn't ever experience tricky feelings like fear or sadness! I don't know about you, but sometimes those tricky emotions can take over. They can feel big and overwhelming. Especially at the moment. I loved the part in the video clip where it said "we can't always choose what happens to us, but we can choose how we respond".
At the moment, we don't have much choice over some things. We can't go to school, or see friends and family. We might be worried or scared about the things we are hearing in the news. But we do have a choice about how we respond - about which feelings we let shout loudest!
Remember, those tricky feelings have a purpose too. They let us know that things aren't 'right' or that there is something we need to deal with... but if we exercise our gratitude muscles, perhaps we will find it easier to be resilient when those tricky feelings surface!
Mrs McVittie is taking part in the #100happydayschallenge as her way of exercising her gratitude muscle. Every day she takes a photo of something that made her happy that day that she is thankful for. Sometimes it is something 'big' or 'exciting' and other days it is something small and seemingly unimportant. It's her way of noticing the good things even on days that don't seem it!
We are on a clifftop, by the seaside for our resilience training in today's video.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
