Week 4 Lessons: Gratitude & Centering

Last week’s lessons discussed emotional and physical health which will help prepare the girls for the curriculum to come this week. Our mental health is sometimes overlooked and can take a back seat to the hectic schedules we all seem to live out day-today. Even your children may not be exempt from learning how to juggle and master multiple things at once with school, sports, and academic clubs to dedicate their time to. So, it seems the lessons on centering and gratitude have come at a perfect time.

Teaching the girls to seek and strive for gratitude in all circumstances will help them understand that even if something is out of their control, they can still have control over how they react to it. In turn, the next time something disappointing or aggravating happens, they will gain a new perspective and be better able to manage whatever isn’t going their way. And, if we know anything about life, it is that most things do not go our way and how we react to those situations can make a world of difference.

The second lesson will discuss centering–the importance of slowing down–and I’m personally excited about this topic and ready to witness how the girls will react to the notion of taking a minute to be reflective. The workout will involve the girls running silently by themselves for a change with ample time to think and be introspective. Afterward, we will have a discussion to see how the girls felt about the workout this week and what benefits, or struggles, they experienced in having to spend some time with themselves.

Hope everyone has a great week and takes some time to center and reflect on all that is good!
