Issue Number 06 | March 2020 Mindfulness Mindfulness is paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – in order to improve your mental wellbeing. In order to become more mindful, we should take more notice of thoughts, feelings, body sensations and the world around you. There are a number of apps which help people gain a better understanding of mindfulness and promoting positive mental health that can be found on our school website, here: http://www.marr.sayr.sch.uk/uploads/4/6/6 /7/46671315/apps_websites_help_mhw_fina l_may_2019__002_.pdf Connect Social distancing is probably the wrong name for it… it should probably be called physical distancing. We can still be social! Talk to your friends, family, loved ones. Use video calls. Have a get together on Zoom! If you’re worried about your friend, then remember to #AskTwice Check in with your teachers – say ‘Hi’ – it’ll make their day! If you’re concerned about your own, or your friend’s wellbeing, please get in touch with your guidance teacher. You can contact them through the school email marr.mail@south-ayrshire.gov.uk 14
