Feel Good Friday

Hello everyone,

Today‚Äôs post is about something very special.¬† It’s about how we can find positives and happiness even when something very sad has happened.

Some of you will know, but for those of you that don‚Äôt, our lovely Mrs Lumby’s beautiful dog, Bob, died recently.

This was a very sad time for Mrs Lumby and her family, as Bob had been a huge part of their lives.  They loved him very much and he loved them too, they shared the most happiest of times together.

This is one of Mrs Lumby’s favourite photographs of Bob.¬† It shows what a funny, happy dog he was.

BOB

Mrs Lumby was thinking to herself that Bob would not want her to be sad and thought of what he used to do when he was feeling happy and also what he did to make Mrs Lumby and her family feel happy.  Bob would wag his tail!!

While thinking about this Mrs Lumby started to jiggle and wiggle in her chair, just like she was wagging an imaginary tail.  As she did this, she noticed that she was smiling and that she had started to feel happy.

I tried this with Mrs Lumby and she was right!  Having an imaginary tail and giving it a little wag, whether you are sitting or standing, can help to make you smile and feel happy.  GIVE IT A TRY!!

Mrs Lumby told Mr Fairclough about this and he wanted to give it a try and so here they are being happy wagging their imaginary tails.

It would be great if you wanted to share some pictures or videos of you wagging your imaginary tails.  You can email us at wellbeing@westrise-jun.e-sussex.sch.uk.

Massive thanks to Mrs Lumby for sharing her fabulous idea.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend of wagging!!
