Wellbeing Wednesday - Wise Words

Wellbeing Wednesday – Wise Words

After a long weekend and some beautiful weather, we hope you’re all feeling uplifted and ready to tackle the remainder of the year! For this month’s Wellbeing Wednesday, we’re going back to basics with some quotes to live by.

“You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce.”

Use. Your. Time. Wisely. That’s essentially the moral from this popular quote! Yes, we all have commitments and other factors to contend with in our day, but everyone has the opportunity to work the time you have to make things happen. Here’s a tip – head to the ScreenTime tab under your phone settings and take a look at how much of your time is spent scrolling through social media or tapping on Candy Crush – shocked? Add a limit to your most used apps and have a go at filling that period with something productive.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

This one is so true for many in our academy community – we have students of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. Whether it’s an everyday goal, or a big dream, don’t let anything limit you in your quest!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial in to acceptance, chaos to order, confusion. To clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow.”

A biggie, but a goodie. You’d be surprised how much your mindset can adjust upon reflection and gratitude. We’ve mentioned before in a previous Wellbeing Wednesday article about starting a gratitude journal – give it a go (and thank us later)!

“Whāia te mātauranga hei oranga mō koutou”

Translated to “Seek after learning for the sake of your wellbeing”, this whakatauki (proverb) highlights the importance of knowledge as a key for your future and your wellbeing. #alwayslearning

“Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn.”

A reminder you don’t always achieve what you wanted, but that’s okay! A mistake or a miss is an opportunity to better yourself for the next time – the secret it to keep on going, not quitting.
