Bucks MIND Wellbeing Resources
Week 1- Spring Term 2- 24th February 2021
Please see below for your weekly newsletters and resources, all themed around self-care this week.
Week 6- February 2021
This Wednesday we are focusing on ‘Friendships’ because we know how difficult it has been to be away from those we care about.
Hopefully some inspiration can be taken from here to ensure we are still keeping in touch with our friends despite the physical distance.
Week 3- January 2021
Theme: Good News
This week’s theme is centred on Good News.
Something I’ve chosen to think about this past week is the fact that it’s almost February and that it’s gradually staying lighter in the evenings 😊
Additionally, I’m sure you’re aware next week is Children’s Mental Health Week (1st -7th February) as well as Time to Talk Day (4th February) so do take a look at the following websites for further resources and information.

Week 3: Theme: Good News
Week 2- January 2021
Theme is Brain breaks
This week's theme is brain breaks.
Happy Wednesday – we’re another week into lockdown no.3 and with the increased time spent indoors there’s no doubt that our screen time has increased. So our wellbeing theme for this week centres on brain breaks and much needed downtime.
Additionally, we would like to promote our Bucks Mind exercise and yoga classes. (please see attached posters below for further information)
These classes are a fantastic way to boost motivation and stay healthy in mind and body during these difficult January days.
Grace from the CYP Team will also be delivering a Virtual Mental Health and Strategies session on 11th February for staff and parents to attend, so do drop her an email if you would like to join.

This week’s theme is Keep Learning 😊 as you’ll know, learning, trying new things and rediscovering old hobbies is one of the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’.
You are never too old or young to try and learn something new, and the good thing is learning doesn’t have to involve being in a classroom. Plus, we all know that achieving a new skill or piece of knowledge can improve self-esteem and confidence.
There is also a fab video made by the lovely Grace which suggests different ways to continue learning to feel good.

This week's theme is is Mental Health.As it is Mental Health Awareness Week we felt it was perfectly fitting. So along with newsletters and resources, please find a video link made by The Mental Health Foundation below.
Our theme this week centres on The Arts. Please see the resources attached below.
Even though it may not look or feel like Summer this week, June should typically be filled with warm, sun filled days, which was why we opted for the theme of SUMMER for this week.
Nonetheless, we can still appreciate the lighter evenings and know that the grass is getting a good natural watering 😊
