This holiday season will look a bit different for most of us, as we do our best to stay healthy and safe. Changes to our normal holiday plans and children on winter break without a way to get out of the house can cause our stress to pile up. To help you and your family manage the impact, we’re sharing a few resources from our friends at Inner Explorer, our District’s Mindfulness School-Based Program, to help you stay well! ***The Inner Explorer @HOME App -This year, Inner Explorer launched an app exclusively for families based on our K-12 program used in over 5100 schools. We encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness together at home. Visit our district portal to register for the app at: https://xp.innerexplorer.org/compass/Agawam then simply download the app and enter your 4-digit passcode to sync your account with your school. Launch the app and then select a practice and press play to experience a few moments of rest and relaxation. 5-10 minutes of mindfulness per day can greatly decrease stress and help you manage the difficulties that may arise over the holidays. ****A Gift for You: Inner Explorer would like to gift you, our student’s caretakers, a special practice to help reduce holiday stress during this hectic time of year, especially in these challenging times. Listen to the practice at https://innerexplorer.org/holiday-practice.html for a moment of much-needed self-care! Wishing you and your family a safe and healthy holiday season! 3-Minute Family Registration Video: https://youtu.be/XlVElNy20B00
