I’m light as a feather, yet the strongest person can’t hold me for five minutes. What am I?

Last spring, our Social Worker at Jordan Club shared with us a meditation showing loving kindness to those around us and ourselves. As we finish up this week, where so much is unknown and tensions and fears may be high, we think Katie’s words are so applicable! Watch and try her short meditation exercise now and see how you feel after sending out some good vibes.

Plus, take a look these A to Z coping strategies from Our Mental Health Space to find 26 ideas, strategies and techniques to help a young person to cope better if they are experiencing stresses and pressures which are making them feel in crisis.

For all ages.
