Here are some lovely exercises to keep you chilled out and full of love this month! Try them at home or in your classroom or even secretly at work! Make every day a loving day!
Imagine you are sprinkling love dust all over your partners head, neck and back. Draw large love hearts with your palms on their back.
Love and Kindness affirmation
Repeat ‘I am a kind and loving person, I am a kind and loving person, I am a kind and loving person, I am a kind and loving person, I am a kind and loving person, I am a kind and loving person’
‘I am loved, I am loved, I am loved, I am loved, I am loved’
Write the word LOVE as large as possible in graffiti type letters and let your child colour in the word. They can add pictures of things that help them feel calm. Let them use calming colours – anything to create an image of calm. Tell children to stare at the picture and see how loving they can feel. Then ask them to close their eyes and make the picture very small – like a postage stamp. Tell children they can keep this little picture anywhere they like in their body – heart, head, finger. Whenever they are feeling stressed and anxious, they can look at their calm picture and feel loving.
