As part of our assembly today your families have been set a challenge! We talked about different types of families and how a family can mean all sorts of different groupings, think what it means to you – who are the people who love and care for you and who you love and care for? In a family, we like everyone to feel happy.

 The Feel Good Five are 5 simple suggestions that will help you and your family to feel happier.

 Feel Good Five

1. Connect – talk with someone in your family and really listen to what they have to say, perhaps ask about something that happened at work, at a club or perhaps how he or she is feeling today and why that is.

2. Be active – do something active with your family like going for a walk or playing a game that gets you moving.

3. Take notice – take a bit of time to notice things around you, perhaps have a mindful moment, notice what you can see, hear, smell, feel. Perhaps notice what the people around you are up to, how they are feeling or acting.

4. Learn – We’re learning new things all the time, see if you can find out something new, an interesting fact, perhaps learn a new skill, you could write  fact files about your family’s favourite things.

5. Give – Think of an opportunity to show kindness to someone else. Being kind to others actually makes you feel good so it’s a kindness for you as much as the person on the receiving end! Try doing something to help out around the house, maybe an opportunity to share with someone, maybe just holding open a door for someone or saying something kind.

It would be fabulous if you could do at least one of the Feel Good Five every day. See what you can manage to do.

A challenge sheet is attached  to help explain to your family what is involved and space to record when you have done it. You could add extra sheets if you want to tell us more, or you could present your challenge report your own way – we’d love to hear and see all about it! Maybe we could create a display to showcase the work?
