What’s New This Week? Our 2023 Mindful Calendar is here!

A happy new year from Be Happy Resources – it’s our first upload of 2023 so let’s have a look at what’s new below.
We have a love/hate relationship with new year – whilst many of us see it as a time for reflection and an opportunity to start anew, many children are dealing with the comedown from Christmas, anxious caregivers at home and their own mental health issues which aren’t magically resolved by a fresh start. In fact, January has been known to be one of the most depressing months of the year – with the upcoming so-called ‘Blue Monday’ on 16th January.
 
What is Blue Monday?
‘Blue Monday’ is a term coined to describe the apparent ‘most depressing day of the year.’ Whilst this was originally made up as a PR stunt, there may be some truth in the title. The second to third Monday in January is a date when many adults who have made new year’s resolutions fail, we are dealing with the over-indulgence from Christmas and coping with the longer, darker nights and colder weather. We’ll be bringing you some specific resources for Blue Monday soon, but in the mean time let’s explore our latest uploads.

Our annual Mindful Calendar is back for 2023! This was a huge hit last year and was our most popular download of January 2022.

My 2023 Hopes
Hope is a powerful emotion and a huge part of mental health recovery. Help children to feel hopeful this year by writing down their hopes for them, their family, the world and their school.
 
Goal For It! – My 2023 Goals Pack
Setting goals is an effective way to increase motivation and helps us to make the changes we want. We all know how good it feels to achieve a goal! The reason why some goals fail is due to them being too difficult or trying to change too much, too fast. Our Goal For It activity pack is all about making 7 small goals and building up the confidence to achieve them. Start by having your child write their small goals for 2023 in the footballs, then complete the letter writing and visualisation activity to help increase their confidence and ability to achieve them. When they’ve achieved a goal, they can cut out our Goal Reached stickers and glue on to the footballs!
 
What My Anger Looks Like…
For many children returning to school after a two week change to routine can be extremely tiring and emotionally draining. We know that children struggle to communicate their emotions and that this can often come out in outbursts of anger or frustration. In this activity we want to help your child think about anger and what it looks like. If their anger was a living being – what would it look like? What would it wear? What makes it angry? This worksheet is all about exploring this emotion and thinking about the things that cause us to explode.
