Wellbeing

These are some websites and resources around mindset and emotional wellbeing, to help you and your children stay emotionally well during this very odd time.

Websites:

Action for Happiness    This fantastic site has lots of resources including a monthly 'small actions' calender, a podcast and lots of recommended activities.

Big Life Journal    This is the website for Big Life Journal, which is an interactive journal for kids based around mindset and aspects of emotional intelligence. As well as the journal  (which we think is fantastic), the website has downloadable activities and challenges, some free and some with a small cost.
