My Happy Mind

My Happy Mind is a non-academic intervention that works to help children to better understand how their brain works, the biological parts of this and how characteristics and traits can be promoted through brain training and practice, helping us to be the very best self that we can be. 

Created by Laura, My Happy Mind works on building habits and is based on a positive growth mindset that is based on neuroscience and solid scientific evidence. As a tool for improving wellbeing, My Happy Mind is currently positively impacting over 200,000 children building confidence, resilience, perserverance and other positive characteristics within staff and pupils. 

Over the course of the next term, The Arches pupils will be taking part in weekly My Happy Mind sessions within class working to develop some of the positive characteristics above. As part of an NHS funded pilot, The Arches are looking forward to trialling this scheme, continually promoting wellbeing as a focus for all. Once we know our brain, activities and breathing exercises will be undertaken and pupils will hopefully become more able in independently performing such challenge-tackling techniques. Happy breathing cures everything! 

At home, parents and carers can help us in delivering this curriculum too! If you or your child would like to practise some of the techniques learned and further your in school learning of this curriculum, you are able to download the FREE My Happy Mind app. Whether at home or in school, My Happy Mind has proven to positively balance and impact those who undertake its techniques and proves to be beneficial for all right through and during adulthood!

We look forward to seeing how we get on! Let us know if you're carrying out My Happy Mind techniques at home and how you're finding this learning journey!
