Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

This is my last week of teaching this term already!
I really enjoyed meeting all the new and returning students and families, and I’m grateful of being part of their journey whether is was with crochet, mindfulness or a combination!
Thank you so much for having me there!
 
I read this quote somewhere online and I thought it would make a great mindfulness workout.
 
“If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are residing in the future. If you are at peace, you are awake in the present.” – Lao Tzu
 
So this week try to be mindful of where your mind is going. Are you drifting of in the past, or are you already miles ahead into the future?
And when you notice where you are, you can bring yourself kindly back to the present moment. Because there is plenty to enjoy right here, that you don’t want to miss!
 
Have a great week,

Hi again, it’s Te Reo Māori week this week. The theme this year is ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ which means ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong’.
 
With Wellngton aiming to be a bilingual capital city, we already have lots of opportunities to learn te Reo every day! Just be mindful of council notices and newsletters, where Te Reo words are used in a way that makes it easy to understand the meaning of it. Or check out other places where te Reo is used, like your local supermarket, to learn a new word every day!
 
So for this week, let’s be mindful of Te Reo language and make an effort to learn one new word a day!!!
 
Can you let me know what words you are already using??
 
My favourite word is kapai 🙂
 
Have a great week,
M

Hooray it’s Spring! There’s no denying, so many flowers everywhere!

I have received a bunch of stickers and cards from @mentalhealthfoundationnz and I give them to all my students and hang them around classrooms and public spaces!!
 
I love the stickers with the compliments, as we often forget to say something positive out loud when we notice it! Not only makes it somebody else feel good, it also makes you feel good!
 
So this week, give at least three compliments a day and enjoy!
 
Have a great week,
