Mindfulness

Mindfulness

Creative Mindfulness has become very popular amongst the staff and pupils at The Link School. The pupil’s access weekly sessions and drop in appointments are available to those pupils who request them.

Mindful can mean becoming aware of our thoughts, feelings, body sensations and surrounding environment. Mindfulness activities help us deal with our emotions in a range of ways, creating coping strategies that can be used throughout our lives.

Many pupils have voiced that they would like to have access to some of the strategies and activities to use at home and share with their families. As the pupil voice is very important at The Link School, we have decided to offer access to some Mindful activities and links via the school website.

Mindful Music to help us relax. This is great to listen to before sleep or when struggling with our emotions.

This half term the pupils have been listening to relaxing music with nature sounds. Here are some links below:
