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.
It’s October half term here in the UK and as exciting and fun as it is to have so much time and space away from school, I also know that into that space jumps sibling squabbles, endless requests for more sweets, screens and other items that require strict limits. Hold those boundaries firm – don’t let the giddyness of the holidays weaken your resolve!
I have an extra special episode for you today. This one is a little bit special because I get to talk to one of you. Yes a brave and fearless Wildheart and her Mum are on the show today answering all the questions about all of the things Smiley.
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.”
How do you spot a fake friend over a real one? Do you know the difference? It’s really important that you surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you. You deserve the very best in life and to be treated with love and kindness.
It took me such a long time to realise that I am in charge of my brain and I can help myself climb out of thought holes….or maybe not even get stuck in them in the first place. So in today’s episode, I want to help you understand your brain a bit better because nobody teaches us this stuff at school and it’s going to really help you. There’s quite a bit to cover and as usual, there will be Smiley stories to keep us going.
