Mental Fitness:

Quote of the Week: “Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.” 

Brainstorm and write many ways that you can motivate yourself each day while at home.   For example:  when you get up make the bed, take a bath/shower, read a few chapters of a favorite book, etc. 

What can you come up with that motivates you?

Practice 4-7-8 Breathing for stress relief:

  • Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose for a 4 second count
  • Hold your breath for a 7 second count
  • Exhale completely through your mouth making a whoosh sound for an 8 second count.

Spend time listening to some calming/relaxing music on YouTube:

Write a favorite inspirational quote/saying and create a design around it.

  • Spend time each day, writing about your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a journal
  • Talk to someone about how you are feeling.
  • If you are having difficulty, don’t hesitate to reach out to a family member, to one of your teachers or call (506) 522-8167.  We are here to help!
