Welcome back to another week of curated, research-based, education resources to support student mental wellbeing (and yours too).

This week our resources focus on reframing our circumstances.

How many times have you heard "I can't do it" or "I don't know how" or perhaps even thought these things yourself? The power of yet harnesses the growth mindset to transform these phrases into "I can't do it... yet" and "I don't know how... yet". This shifts the focus from right now, onto what can be done now to build skills for the future.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created circumstances that made thinking of the "now" necessary. But as the year draws to a close, let's take a moment to shift gears and think about "yet".

When it becomes hard to handle, remember that the pandemic isn't over... yet. This reframing is an excellent example of what our resources below demonstrate.

Don't forget that in addition to recieving these resources, every week we will randomly draw from subscribers for 3 months, offering prizes such as facemasks, the Mind Up Curriculum series, and $50 cash awards. For a limited time, we are giving an extra entry in the draw to anyone who successfully invites another educator to subscribe to our emails with their educational work email address: https://tinyurl.com/MylesAheadEducators.
