We have been doing the Weaving Well-Being programme and we have been learning a very helpful life lesson which is to BE KIND TO YOURSELF.

It helps you focus on the positive things over the negative and to have a positive mindset.

Helpful self-talk has positive outcomes and can help your mind to think positively.  Instead of negative self-talk which might make you give up or doubt yourself, positive self-talk means you encourage yourself and believe that if we keep trying we will succeed.   Helpful self-talk can help your mind to think and act positively and never think of the negative side of life.  There is always room to improve and we can always get help.

Sometimes we can feel that our intelligence and talents are fixed and can’t change.  This is a fixed mindset.  We all have different strengths and abilities, we just need to find our own one, through hard work and effort we can achieve.  This is a growth mindset.

We are so grateful to the teachers for giving kids this life lesson and teaching us about positive minds.

Hopefully by the end of the year we will all have positive minds!
