The Coronavirus has become a global pandemic and changed our daily life as we know it. The planet has slowed down, the schools are shut and people are being asked to stay at home. With all this time on our hands, can we turn this to our advantage or are we drowning in a sea of worry and feeling stuck with nothing to do. Let’s have a chat about that.
Life is a series of endings and new beginnings – a bit like chapters in a big book. With any ending comes loss and grief. Sometimes we have to grieve for situations and people who are still alive. Like when a family breaks up or when our friends move away. Death however is slightly different. It is part of life, but something which remains a mystery to us all. I’ve created this episode to help children understand death and make sense of it according to their little world. We will all have different beliefs about death and dying. Nobody is right or wrong because really we don’t know! Children have curious minds that are full of questions. When we don’t understand or we can’t make sense of something, it feeds our fear and anxiety.
This month the message is about sadness – allowing your tears to fall and wash away your sadness. Listen to the message and learn how to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. This might be helpful if you are worried or angry. Often that’s a sign that there is something lurking underneath all those big feelings.
Squeeeeeeeeeeel! I’m celebrating and I want to celebrate my good news with you! Listen in today and hear how important it is to celebrate success (without showing off). We often forget to look at how far we’ve come and we tend to notice what is wrong or what we can’t do. Or we compare ourselves to others and wish we could be more like them! You’re not meant to be like them. Do you know why? Because you are you…and that is BRILLIANT! In the words of Dr Suess …
“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”
Have you ever got yourself in a funk with your worries and lost your confidence? Life can sometimes get super hard. You feel like you want to give up. It’s frustrating. Your brain can tell you that it’s never going to work out. This happens to me, and sometimes, I can be really hard on myself. The good news is that I have found a way to take my power back, and so I can help you too.
Do you have a storm raging within you? Maybe you feel like it’s out of control and perhaps you’ve tried hard to contain it. Often it gets you into trouble and you end up saying things or doing things that you regret. That’s OK. I’ve done that too because we’re human and having a full range of emotions is part of that human experience. In today’s episode I want to get you to think about your anger in a different way, without judging it or making it wrong.
