How to Win Your Day
On Monday, June 10th, Ms. Natalie Glebova visited our middle and high school students to host a seminar on how to have a winning day. From creating morning rituals, to having a productive school day, to a winding-down and relaxing evening, it is what we we do on a daily basis that determines the quality and outcome of our lives, so having winning habits and performing tasks purposefully and mindfully are the keys to success. Ms. Natalie spoke about various habits that students can implement into their daily routine to be successful in school, and in life.
The main lessons for having a winning day include:
- Be Mindful
- Show love to your body
- Feed your mind
- Give kindness
- Practice gratitude
The seminar was interactive and the various activities prompted students to start thinking about and implementing their winning habits. Ms. Natalie initiated a mindfulness practice, showed the students how to do some self-love rituals, and invited all students to write kindness and gratitude notes for a gratitude jar.
