June 25, 2020 is National Handshake Day!
On the last Thursday of June each year, people across the nation observe National Handshake Day. Of all the various forms of greeting, the handshake is perhaps one of the most ancient. The origin of the handshake is hard to pinpoint.
COVID-19 has caused us to keep a safe distance from one another so handshakes are out of the question right now! Can you create a new no hands handshake?
Mindfulness for Teens Home
Being a teen can be really stressful! Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress, and live life more fully. Mindfulness is all about living fully in the present moment, without judgment, and with an attitude of kindness and curiosity. It’s about breathing, noticing what’s happening right here and now, sending a gentle smile to whatever you’re experiencing in this moment (whether it’s easy or difficult), and then letting it go. You can be mindful anytime, anywhere, no matter what you’re doing. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy to do, especially when you are stressed! This website provides information, tools, and resources to help you get started.
Hear what other teens have to say about mindfulness in the Kelty Centre’s 3-minute video, “Mindfulness: Youth Voices.”
