We are grateful to work with The Resilience Project to support the mental health and wellbeing of students. Each student is provided with a wellbeing journal that allows them to explore the benefits of Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, and easy ways to practise these in everyday life. The Resilience Project lessons provide practical, evidence-based mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness.
What is Gratitude?
It’s about paying attention to the things and moments we have right now, and not worrying about what we don’t have. We practise gratitude by noticing the positives that exist around us, and by being thankful for things, places and people in our lives.
What is Empathy?
Empathy and kindness are closely linked. So are empathy and compassion. To be empathetic is to put ourselves in the shoes of others to feel and see what they are. We practice this by being kind towards other people.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness activities help us to be present in the moment and often create a feeling of calm. We practice this through slowing down and concentrating on one thing at a time. This includes meditation, colouring in and flow states.
