Supporting mental, physical and emotional wellbeing
Update 10th April 2020
Hello again to all our Recovery College students Recovery College Update 3 – 10.4.20
How are you all settling into the new routines? Have you discovered yet that having a daily routine is really helpful? It has been a strange and new time for us all, but we can all adapt to the changes. Have you noticed that, because of the reduced traffic noise, the bird song is much louder and clearer? A nice cheery sound.
This week’s challenge was to Exercise in some way every day, how did that go?
Please do connect with us on Facebook, North Ayrshire Wellbeing & Recovery, we have lots of content going up every day and it would be great to have some comments below the posts!
Dr Jane Bentley was our guest on Tuesday’s Rec College Connects Zoom and we learnt how the brain reacts to music, every area light up. It was fascinating. We even did a wee rhythm together. Dr Jane has produced the first in a ‘Drumming for Wellbeing’ short film series for us. It is for absolute beginners and also guides us how to make percussion at home. There is an accompanying audio track so you can play at home. That should appear on our FB page and website this weekend – an Easter treat for you all.
We will attach the audio track to this email and have a look at the youtube video on the making of a djembe ‘There is no movement without rhythm’, (Control and click on the link) https://youtu.be/lVPLIuBy9CY?t=132
Molly has prepared a worksheet for Write to Recovery for you, please have a go at writing. There will be new worksheets coming to you.
Next week we have 4 ZOOM sessions for you. If you click on the link a few minutes before the session is due to start that will let you join in. Even more students have joined in this week, using new technology and it has been great to see their friendly faces. When you click on the meeting Zoom will ask you to enable video and enable audio, it is not difficult.
MONDAY 13th April 1pm
Create-a-long Live ZOOM with Molly. Bring what you are making, sketching, knitting, stitching, with a cup of tea for a chat and a show and tell. Some students suggested this so do pop in?
