5 Ways to Wellbeing

WELLBEING WEEK! - from elsa-support.co.uk

Wellbeing Week Daily Resources

Our Wellbeing characters are ready to teach pupils all over the country. Each day has a focus to help pupil’s wellbeing.

  • Mondays we look at being ‘mighty’

The focus is on bravery and confidence. Pupils will focus on that strength of character and will find ways to increase their confidence and bravery.

  • Tuesdays we look at being ‘thoughtful’

The focus is on being thoughtful and kind. How they can help others and think about other people’s feelings.

  • Wednesdays we look at ‘wishes’

The focus is on goals and wishes. How they can set a goal and reach that goal. How that will make them feel.

  • Thursdays we look at ‘thankfulness’

The focus is on gratitude and looking for those little things we appreciate. This will help their positive outlook on life.

  • Fridays we look at ‘friendship’

The focus is on friendship and how connecting with friends is important for their wellbeing. It will also look at qualities of friendship.

  • Saturdays we look at ‘self-care’

The focus is on looking after minds and bodies by doing things that make them feel good.

  • Sundays we look at ‘successes’

The focus is on celebrating their achievements that week. If you look hard enough there is always something to be proud of.
