Mindful Monsters | Mental Health Awareness Week


Today marks the first day of Mental Health Week and today I wanted to share with you something I'm incredibly proud to be supporting - Mindful Monsters created by Scope. I regularly write about my own battles with anxiety and feel very passionately that mental health should be more openly discussed. When Scope got in contact with me I knew this was something I would want to be involved in - I already practice mindfulness, so sharing this with my daughter was something I was all for.


Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. It's being able to slow down in order to notice all the little things around you or inside. Taking stock of those little things.



Mindful Monsters is based on these principles of mindfulness, exploring four themes of relaxation, creativity, positivity and concentration. They are a series of simple, quick, easy to fit into your busy lives activity cards which will help your children to feel the full benefits of mindfulness, which include;

• More resilience in day-to-day life
• Improved focus
• Better understanding of emotions
• A sense of calm
• More positive thinking – promoting kindness



I'm always saying how important your mental health is and it's so important to teach your children skills like those that mindfulness brings. It's a lovely way of spending quality time together and we've been enjoying doing the activities together over the last couple of weeks.

 You can sign-up to get regular deliveries of fun family activity cards by visiting Mindful Monsters from the 8th May. 

By purchasing Mindful Monsters for your family, you are helping to support around 250,000 disabled people and their families every year; by 2022 Scope’s goal is to increase this figure to 2 million. Scope don’t want any parent to feel alone or scared when they have just learnt that their child is disabled. Thanks to you, Scope will be able to raise more money, so they can reach every family that needs them, and make sure that every disabled child had the best start in life. So, not only are these cards beneficial to your own family, they’re also supporting other families.
