Empathy is the ability to understand and care about what another person is feeling. When we feel empathy for others, we are more likely to act in a kind way. When you do something kind for someone else, you feel happy too.
Activity: How can you show empathy to someone in your family? Draw or write two examples.
Gratitude is the ability to pay attention to what we have, instead of worrying about what we don’t have. We can practise this by noticing the positives that exist around us. When we practise gratitude every day, we elevate our mood and improve our mental health.
Practise gratitude at least three times a week by drawing/writing one of the following:
What were three things that went well for you today?
Who is someone you feel really grateful for today? Tell us why.
What is it about our home that makes it our home/special family place?
What is something you are looking forward to tomorrow?
