During this course we talked a lot about how being mindful of our thoughts and actions helps us change how we react to sad or stressful news. We've also learned different strategies to help us focus on the present and reduce our stress or anxiety.
Using what you have learned so far about mindfulness, feelings, empathy, positivity, gratitude, and self-confidence, create a giant picture of you and the people you love most, in the place you love most, doing your favorite activity and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We actually have a lot of power over the way that we feel!
Doing just 45 minutes of art or other creative artistic activities can build up your self-confidence, which is pretty amazing.
Being confident in ourselves and our abilities is important because it means we feel like we can handle the unexpected and solve our problems if we put in the effort!
