Self reflection

1.) What is something you did for your body?

I’ve been trying my best to stay active while I’m at home. I think it’s really important because during my regular schedule, I get a lot of physical activity, but since it’s all been canceled, I’ve had to find more creative things to do. I found a 10 minute workout online, and I’m trying my best to do it everyday. I made sure to pick one that’s challenging but short, so that I have no excuse because it’s easy to make time and do it. It’s worked well so far!

2.) What is something you did for your mind?

I’ve made sure I go outside for a walk AT LEAST once a day, because it’s important to get fresh air and a change in scenery. It can be super hard on people to be inside for such long periods of time, so I made some different walking routes I can take, such as going up the hill to Austin Avenue and back, or going to Makin park. It really helps me clear my head 😊

3.) What is something you did for your happiness?

During this difficult time, I’ve tried my best to keep up with my friends. We play games online together, and just facetime to talk. I get pretty upset when I don’t get to connect with people for long periods of time, so even though we can’t connect face to face, I still try my best to do it online. A couple weeks ago I even made a club penguin account, and I played with a couple of my friends. It reminds me of my childhood and made me really happy!

4.) What is something you did for someone else?

A couple days ago it was my brother’s 7th birthday, and he was upset that he had to spend it at home. We wanted to do something special for him, so we borrowed some carnival games from a girl guides group and set up a carnival in our back yard. My mom bought prizes and me and my brother even cut out little tickets! It was really fun, and I think he really enjoyed it.

I hope everyone is staying safe during these difficult times!!! Thanks for reading my post 🙂

  1. Hey Jasmine!
    It seems like you have been keeping busy and that’s great!

    Like you, I have been going for walks every day as well. It is a great way to get out of the house and have a change in scenery like you said. I especially enjoy going for walks and seeing other people who live in my neighbourhood out for walks too. In some ways, these new times have inspired people to do things they never usually do and I think it’s quite interesting and nice to see!

    I loved reading that you made a club penguin account because I did too! My sisters were begging me to come on and play with them “for old times sake.” But quite truthfully, we have had a ton of fun playing it. You are totally right, it brought back so many memories for me too of my childhood and logging on to play club penguin when I was younger!

    Thanks for sharing Jasmine I really enjoyed your post!
