Having many restrictions upon me regarding the number of people I can reach when promoting new free resources that I create, please be sure to like my Facebook page to ensure that you get notified of the latest workbooks and various self-help tools that is still to come. I am currently working on a workbook focusing on 'Back to School'.
This Covid-19 lockdown is an ideal opportunity to help our children in becoming more mindful of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours while life is currently, more or less, at a standstill for them. You can help your children while homeschooling using these fun educational activity worksheets that will help the promotion of various invaluable aspects (click here for further information). Not only for them, but yourself also as the outcome will allow you to gain greater insight into their present wellbeing. Therefore, helping you all to identify ways to help them move forward in life, more positively and efficiently.
This brand-new workbook follows on from the previous 3 wellbeing workbooks that I created and generally focuses on the use of reflection. By using the current Covid-19 experience, and having learnt all that they have recently having completed the first wellbeing workbook, children will now come to reflect on past, present, and possible future aspects of their young lives, continuing to enhance their self-awareness and all other positive wellbeing understandings being.
Therefore, these worksheets will encourage children to identify any negative areas that they have been struggling with, onto helping them to recognise how they could possibly better their struggles and become able to create positive changes for themselves to solve the issue in question.
How do my workbooks promote positive emotional wellbeing?
There are many ways to help a child develop and/or enhance good emotional wellbeing. Just some of the key aspects that my worksheets include to promote this are:
Enhancing the ability to understand and show gratitude
Develop awareness of appreciation
Identify strengthens and weaknesses
Be mindful of self and others
Create coping strategies
Understand how to cope with change
Enhancing positive mental attitude (PMA)
Understanding emotions and how these affect us within various aspects
Identify, understand and accept what is, and isn’t, within your control
Understanding that the use of reflection can be most useful, and fun even!
Connect with others

Enhance/develop a broadened emotional vocabulary.
Enhance/develop a wider use of language and communication skills

Older children will most likely be able to complete the workbook alone. However, younger children will need the support of adults. Worksheets may appear to be too difficult for younger children but do not be discouraged by this. Encouraging young children to start their development of mental wellbeing will, without fail, create the best start for their adult-self.
These worksheets will also be great memorabilia to look back on in years to come.
I hope you and your children enjoy these free workbooks that I have created for you. I would love to hear any feedback.
