5 ways to boost your students’ well-being
Do your students complain that they are too tired or sleep-deprived? Especially now when the final exams are fast approaching, both teachers and students are juggling too many things. I can hear your deep sigh!
Deepak Chopra said:
"Health is not just the absence of a disease. It's an inner joyfulness that should be ours all the time;a state of positive well-being."
So today I've got for you
5 ways to boost your students' well-being.
#1 Take notice
Create a GRATITUDE Journal for each student. At the end of the day/week ask the students to write 5 things they are grateful for.
Ask your students to prepare a questionnaire in order to find out what their classmates enjoy doing and makes them happy. Then based on the results, schedule appropriate HAPPY activities in your timetable.
Perform Acts of Random Kindness
For example, make HAPPY bookmarks with your students and then leave them in random books at the school library.
# 4 Be active
Spend as much time as possible outdoors. Take every opportunity to have the classes in the open air.
# 5 Keep learning
Run a HAPPINESS reading club. Read an uplifting book with/to your students and then set a discussion or initiate a creative project around it.
NB I really recommend the 1913 novel Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter
If you want to make positive changes in your lifestyle, you could try these tips yourself. They do work!
