Home Activity | Breathing Colours for Blue Monday

  • Written by Oisin Fahim on Friday 7 January 2022 in the category Active Families.

It's important during this time of year to focus on your wellbeing, especially with Blue Monday just around the corner.

That's why we're bringing a range of colours your way that will help to brighten your mood and encourage you to practice mindfulness. Follow our steps below on how to... Breathing Colours.

  1. Have your family sit down together
  2. Get everyone to think of a relaxing colour. This can be any colour you like, as long as it makes you feel calm and relaxed
  3. Imagine that the world around you is in this relaxing colour - the air should no longer be clear, it should be in your colour
  4. Now as you breathe in, think of this colour and imagine that it is filling your lungs
  5. When you breathe out, breathe out any stress, sadness and/or anger
  6. Watch as the colour of your stresses mix with your relaxation colour. Your stress colours will now slowly disappear
  7. Breathe in your relaxing colour
  8. Breathe out your stress colour

Repeat this for 5 minutes.

78% of UK children failing to meet recommended fitness levels

78% of UK children failing to meet recommended fitness levels

Press release:

Fit For Sport, the UK’s leaders in engaging and educating children and young people through physical activity, have revealed that a worrying 78% of primary school pupils across the UK measured through their Healthy Active Schools System (HASS) are failing to meet the recommended fitness levels for their age group.

The leading childcare activity provider launched HASS back in January 2017 in a bid to tackle inactivity amongst primary school pupils, with an estimated one in three children in the UK beginning secondary school as obese.


The Benefits of Active Travel

In 2016 Public Health England released 'Working together to promote active travel', a briefing to local authoritites that aims to encourage more daily physical activity.

October is National Walk To School Month and this offers the perfect opportunity for parents and children to leave those car keys at home and slip on a pair of trainers for an active journey to school.
