luna wellbeing challenge
As part of Children's Mental Health Week, we are launching an exciting new initiative: the luna wellbeing challenge
For this initiative, we have partnered with luna — an educational health app that offers a safe space for teens to learn about their bodies, health and wellbeing. All articles, videos and answers to anonymous questions are medically verified and safety is a top priority — users cannot communicate or interact with one another. To learn more about the app, you can visit the section on their website dedicated to parents/guardians here. You can also download the app here.
Over four weeks, students participating in the luna wellbeing challenge will complete a set of online and offline activities, created in partnership with a team of medical experts at luna. Each challenge is designed to help young people establish healthy habits and positive attitudes around sleep, body image, physical activity, and mental health – habits that will help them for years to come. Some of the activities under each week’s theme may include:
- Week 1 (Making space for your mental health): Start gratitude journaling and complete a short meditation/breathing exercise.
- Week 2 (Getting active): Try a new activity such as yoga, a dance class, a nature walk, or one of luna’s exercise routines.
- Week 3 (Creating a sleep routine): Create a bedtime “ritual” to relax and read some of luna’s articles for inspiration.
- Week 4 (Loving your body and yourself): Using the “11 positive affirmations to use daily” article for inspiration, create personal affirmations, and track your mood daily to observe the positive changes.
We are excited about the positive impact this initiative can have on our student’s wellbeing. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to share them with Ms Crump or Ms Lagess.
