I've been reminding myself to choose my words with care - when I have the presence of mind to do so of course. 😝

When I do, I'm choosing to say 'I GET to do...' instead of 'I HAVE to do...' and it makes a big, big difference. 'I GET to do the laundry for my family.' 'I GET to take my dogs on a long walk.' One word. Big shift. 💚

Take care of yourself first. You need your own care most of all. All the good you do for you will filter through to all the others with whom you interact, naturally. ❤️💛💚💙💜

I tell children that their brains are like a house, with an upstairs (the neocortex: our thinking brain) and a downstairs (the limbic system: our feeling brain). It’s a really simple way to help kids to think about what’s going on inside their head.

Laying strong foundations for emotional intelligence.

This is why I do what I do. Because this isn't acceptable. This isn't okay. This needs to change.

“At one end of the scale we’ve got four-year-olds being tested. At the other end we’ve got teenagers facing the prospect of leaving university with record amounts of debt. Anxiety is the fastest growing illness in under 21s. These things are not a coincidence.”

Natasha Devon, who delivers mental health classes at schools in England and Wales, warns of ‘medicalising childhood’

One of my Year 5 students told me in passing that she's been practicing the Maitri - Loving Kindness meditation I taught her last term. My heart is so full!
