It's been a really tough time for our young people over the last couple of years, so we recently put together a Reflective Letter activity for them to try over on our Youth Forum. It's an opportunity for them to properly reflect on what challenges they've faced, how they've coped, what they've learnt about themselves and what they are looking forward to in the future. A really great tool for them to acknowledge how adaptive they've been and take some time to feel proud of what they've achieved.
We wanted to share it here too, in case you wanted to pass it onto any of your children that might benefit from this activity
So let’s be real– the past two years haven’t been easy on any of us. We’ve all been through so much, and sometimes those challenges can weigh us down.
Psychologists have learned that the act of reflecting on our challenges and our growth is enough to make us feel happier. Often, this kind of reflection can be as simple as saying ‘thank you’. You can grow so much by experiencing that feeling of gratitude. That gratitude can either be towards ourselves for staying strong during hard times, or it can be towards someone else in our lives for helping us get through them.
That’s why we wrote two templates for ‘thank you’ letters. We’re inviting you to take part and write one of these letters yourself!
Here’s how you can do this:
