Weekly focus: Observation and Recording Skills: Connecting to Nature

Happy Victoria Day Long Weekend!   Joyeuse longue fin de semaine tout le monde!

WELLNESS: KEEP PRACTICING YOUR BREATHING! Being mindful about how we feel during our day is important so that we can best help ourselves in feeling well. Get outside if you feel a bit blue; or go for a brisk walk if you feel a burst of energy; or if you feel tired or unsure, being gentle with yourself.  Taking breaks and having empathy for others can also help us to keep our emotional health in check while being mindful of others. So … Breathe in, pause, breathe out, very slowly, letting it go twice as slowly as you inhaled. Try this a few times. Then let your natural breath take over and rest in easeful peace and quiet for many times in your day – and feel more ready to get on with your day 😊   

Stay well, mes amis <3

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.” ― Stephen Hawking.​
