Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This course is designed to help relieve stress and anxiety. You will be guided through meditation where there is a focus on the sensations of breathing and mentally scanning your body to bring awareness to each area.

There are many ways to practice mindfulness, but the overall goal of the  mindfulness technique is to achieve a state of alert, by deliberately paying attention to thoughts and sensations, this focused relaxation resets the mind to be in the present moment.

There has been research around mindfulness meditation which shows that after practising, the grey matter in a specific part of your brain which results in stress, gets smaller reducing anxiety.

Some known benefits are that it controls anxiety and reduces stress, promotes your emotional health and increases self awareness. This focused technique can lengthen attention spams and could even reduce age related memory loss. Being kind to yourself also triggers kindness to others and adds a dimension to general awareness of others.
