Top tip for helping kids with tricky emotions

Monday a fire lit in my belly…

Miranda and I spent the morning with Emily @movementfoundations talking about our new Movement programme for kids and it really inspired me. As a coach I am always looking to develop my skills and it’s amazing to have these new tools and skills at my finger tips, now I am a Movement Coach.

In the Wild👣 Being barefoot is a core part of our Movement workshops it’s so important for wellbeing, balance and much more. So on Tuesday I decided to challenge the students at Alderbrook Secondary School, as part of our In the Wild Workshops, where we teach kids well-being skills in nature.

✨ Setting an example I kicked off my shoes and felt the wonderful feeling of the dewy grass between my toes. As soon as I took off my shoes and came into contact with the ground I felt the immediate impact in my entire body and mind. I felt instantly calmed and had a feeling of freedom, this is called earthing.

Seeing some of the teens that we were working with joining me and taking off their school shoes to do “grass is lava” too was really something special. It’s such a basic thing, but many kids don’t have access to any barefoot time.

Getting kids into nature is such a joy, providing them with crucial time away from their busy indoor worlds, it’s so powerful and impactive for their health on so many levels. I can’t wait to get back out there and kick off my shoes.
