For all the cat lovers out there! 😽😻😼🫶

We don’t need to tell you this as you know but here is a reminder. Cats are loving, (when they want to be) and have the ability to read our emotions, they make us feel special with their desire to be near us whenever we are around.

They are great alarm clocks! 6:30am wake-up call – feed me, let me out – this gives us routine.

They greet us with a cheerful call, whilst winding between our legs (fun fact, they can do that as their shoulder blades are attached to their bodies by muscles and not bones).

Have you ever wondered why stroking your cat helps you feel relaxed? Cat purrs are at a frequency like gamma waves or meditation waves and help to stabilize our breathing. It can also lower our anxiety and blood pressure!

Cycling is a great way to clear your mind, stay fit, save money on fuel and do your bit for the environment.

At Frontline19 we are right behind this one!

Celebrating their 10th Birthday!

The cycle commuting celebration has been a massive success over the last decade. Thousands of commuters have made the switch to cycling to work. They’ve got fitter, reduced their stress levels, saved loads of money on commuting costs – which has never been more important – and done their bit for the environment.

So, this year, whether you’re already a committed cycle commuter or just starting out on your journey - get on your bike and get to work the best way you can.

To be able to actively listen without judgement is sometimes all someone needs.

If someone needs to share a thought:
Give them your attention. 🙂
Listen without interrupting. 👂
Give cues that tell them you hear them. 👍

Thoughtful Thursday!

I was talking to a colleague recently and we agreed that something we really needed to add to our daily routine was a bedtime routine. Instead of the "Just 5 minutes of social media" which, as we all know, can so easily stretch into 30 minutes, an hour!

What one thing could you change? Pause and think.

Feeling better comes in all different shapes and sizes and books can be a way to make achievable changes to feel more positive and take control of our learning. It's no secret that I love books and every day is a chance to learn something new, which is also something that I love as it helps me to grow and develop as a person.

Each month I will read a book that will hopefully help with our well-being. I'll cut out the hard work so that you don't have to wade through huge amounts of books to find a gem.

Please let me know what you think and if want me to read any particular books?

Be thankful for the little things, because when you think about them for a while, they are actually bigger than you first thought.
Lift your mood in just 30 seconds, then why not lift someone else's.
Let them know that they are your person👇🫶

If your brain is racing and you feel like you need to focus on the moment, follow the rainbow. Breathe in and out, listen to your breathing, put a hand on your chest and feel your breathing. Then gently take your foot off the throttle and appreciate the moment.

We love this quote from Louis Lunts a good friend of Frontline19.

We also think that all mental health issues flourish in the dark. By sharing, talking and reaching out we create the sunlight to reduce the power od the darkness and of feeling alone.

Take care of each other and most importantly? Yourself 🌈❤️

It is just a few days until the end of this academic school year. 📅

A year where we said goodbye to bubbles and embraced being back together. 🫶

Head Teachers, Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Pastoral Support Assistants and so, so many support staff have worked tirelessly this year, welcoming children back into a bubble free school, nurturing them and helping them feel safe, listening to the children’s worries and concerns, being that trusted adult that is the difference between feeling sad at the school gate, to smiling entering a classroom.

Children are resilient, we say this so often, but they still have questions and feelings that need to be addressed and named. This year, mental health training has been offered in more schools, to a wider variety of staff. Many becoming mental health champions.

Today is your opportunity to lift the spirit of a member of the teaching community.

Share our post and share your thanks.

Happy Thankful Thursday 🥰🥰

Yes, it is hot! Our weather, the main topic of conversation this week. We are all guilty of lazy conversation.

Your challenge today is to have the most random new conversation with your friends or family.

We live life at 100 miles an hour, with so many distractions. Bills, devices and every imaginable complication the world can provide.

We see the flowers, but do we really SEE the flowers?

Step away from the computer, turn of your devices. Take a walk and go out and see the flowers, feel the sun on your face and the breeze in your hair. Take a few uninterrupted moments at a slower pace.
