Wellbeing Wednesday - Reflect

It is hard to believe that this is our last Wellbeing Wednesday for the academic year. We will not say goodbye to it, because it will most definitely be a feature of your personal development curriculum next academic year.

When the idea was first presented, I was completely under the impression that this would benefit you and only you, however one of my most enjoyable moments of lockdown, has been receiving emails from all of you who have taken part in Wellbeing Wednesday.

I have had the privilege of engaging with students, that I wouldn’t have engaged with on a weekly basis. Your emails of gratitude and show and tell, have really helped me in this difficult time, and I know that other teachers have really enjoyed seeing the amazing work, that you have produced from the Wellbeing Wednesday tasks and challenges.

Thank you to Ms Morris who has done an amazing job with putting together all your literacy activities, and to Ms Argyle, who has made sure that you were active and exposed to new ideas by putting together your enrichment activities; Ms Houssein, for making sure that you were updated with what was happening with our community with HAB@home and Neil, who would make sure that you could access everything online. A big HAB shout out to all staff and students  that sent through ideas and resources to make sure that Wellbeing Wednesday, was a success.

Please send through your thoughts on Wellbeing Wednesday, and how it may have impacted you in a positive way.  Did you have a favourite theme of the week? Did you enjoy a particular HAB challenge? Or did you identify with a specific quote?

I know that not everyone was able to engage with Wellbeing Wednesday but based upon our theme today, I hope that you do set time aside to ensure that you reflect on today’s theme.

The world literally slowed down, and this gave most people the opportunity to rediscover themselves. So many times, we feel as if things move to fast, and we rarely get the chance to really consider ourselves. During lockdown we hope that wellbeing Wednesday allowed for you to take the time to focus on what matters to you. Today’s theme is calling for you to reflect.

To reflect means to think deeply or carefully about something or someone. I invite you engage with this week’s resources and assembl  to understand why refection is important, and to take part in some of the reflection practices provided.

Most people say the we learn from our experiences, but that is not completely true. What we learn from is the reflection as a result of the experiences themselves. Reflection allows for you to move forward with purpose and allows for you to work towards any ambitions that you have for yourself.

WW 14.7.20Self-reflection is the process of bringing your attention to what’s happening in your life in a mindful and open-minded way. The truth is many of us are often too busy to reflect; to take a moment and review our actions and our thoughts so that we can shift our mindset and how we view ourselves or even others around us.

There are many ways to practice self-reflection. Some people might like to keep a journal, some people might prefer to meditate, others might prefer to talk to someone they trust.

However self-reflection allows for you to make sense of things and uncover breakthroughs that can challenge your thoughts and encourage you to live with more intention and purpose. It is something that you can learn to do, and we want to encourage you to develop this habit, because it can lead to you cultivating and leading a happier life.

It is important that you reflect on the past 13 weeks and everything that you have learnt and gained, this will help you move forward and ensure that staff at HAB can help you do so, at your own pace.
