Gratitude - December 2020

Welcome to Wellness Wednesday for the month of December. This month the division is focusing on Gratitude and we are sharing a number of resources that families can use to learn more about Gratitude and complement what our Student Advocacy Counsellors and SFSK Wellness Coaches are doing in our schools. Practising gratitude can help decrease stress and negative thinking, increase happiness and promotes social intelligence.

This month’s Wellness Wednesday also includes some additional resources not related to Gratitude that may be helpful to our NLPS families at this time.
