This morning I took a much-needed mindfulness walk to the Badger Woods. Mindfulness is something we encourage the children to take part in, especially at the end of our Forest School sessions. We use the time to sit or lie quietly looking up at the trees and seeing what different sounds we can hear. This time helps ground the children after a busy session and supports their transition into the next period of the day. We are lucky enough to have a whole range of different birds to listen to when we are down in the woods – how many types of birds can you hear in this video?
When feeling emotional and anxious it helps to take a minute for your self and find some peace where ever you are, which applies for both adults and children! Whether it’s outdoors or in, try and find a quiet spot and pause for a minute today.
