These are all lovely pocket-sized hardbacks designed to offer daily prompts to children in regard to supporting their emotional health. These gorgeous little books are packed full of ways to encourage 6–12-year-olds develop a healthy growth mindset and robust emotional wellbeing.

These books are a simple and light-hearted way to promote social emotional learning without it seeming like you are! The vibrant colours and gorgeous designs make it an appealing way for kid to access motivational and inspiring prompts to enable them to be calmer more often.
Peace Week from 365 Days of Calm
Let’s look at the week themed around peace and the activities, quotes and affirmations.
Peace Week Activity
Activity : Get yourself a really comfy pillow of cushion to sit on and get comfortable. Play some relaxing classical music without words (I like Chopin’s Nocturnes)
Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking through a beautiful forest of glorious trees filled with pink blossoms. Take slow deep breaths and really look around. Taking in the beautiful blue skies and the towering trees and the blossom floating down past your eyes to lie on the ground like snow beneath your feet.
Stay in the forest till you feel totally at peace then slowly open your eyes.
You can always create your own peace
