Have a thankful week, Chaps!
Katie & Kristi
I finished watching Westlake's production of Back to Oz and it was all based on kindness! If you have time this weekend, I highly recommend it for the whole family. It was a great end to World Kindness Day and Week here at WHS!
Also, I saw this article come through on my facebook feed this week. Several of these books have been on my list to read but there are some new ones that I had not heard of. As we head into the gratitude season, kindness is always something we can strive to be every day, with every interaction. I think I may start with UnSelfie.
I always feel happier and kinder when I practice daily gratitude. It's quite simple. Before bed, we all go around and say something that we were grateful for that day. It really creates space for all of us to be present, reflect on our day, and find something positive. Even on what feels like the worst day, we can all find something. And the best part of this is that it really takes no time. There's tons of research about how a daily gratitude practice can also rewire your brain! So why not give it a try!?
Here's a quick mindfulness practice to do with your child or even just try it for yourself.
Stay Kind and Grateful, Chaps!
