For a long time now we’ve made it a habit at our family dinners to go around the table and talk about our favourite thing for the day. It means we all finish the day thinking about what went well, rather than the not so much.
That hasn’t changed with our covid stay-at-home life. Although what was our favourite thing is a lot more consistent as our days don’t change all that much.
Just before the Easter break, Heckle’s school shared this with the school community. The evening GEM made me think about our little family tradition. I think this is a lovely guide to maintaining a good headspace, not only through covid, but generally.
Our mental wellbeing is so important right now, and incorporating our GEM principles (Gratitude, Empathy & Mindfulness) into your daily routine is a great way for you and your family to stay mentally healthy.from Heckle’s school
Evidence tells us that consistent practise and implementation of the GEM principles will make you happier and more resilient, so we have provided below an example of how you can do this at home.
Looking for more inspiration? The Resilience Project App and Journals give you a large range of daily reflections, questions and practical activities, helping you to practice GEM and improve your mental health and wellbeing.
