Written specifically for students experiencing life in lockdown during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, this workbook includes reflective and creative writing tasks. It includes the following tasks:
It’s completely understandable if you’ve found yourself feeling low or unmotivated at some point in lockdown.
Taking time to think about and write down what you’re grateful for in your life can help you to feel positive and happier. See if you can write down three things you feel grateful for every day over the course of a week.
Reflect and write
Why did you feel grateful for those things? Did you find that you felt grateful for the same thing on more than one day?
Choose one of the following writing tasks to bring your thoughts together:
- If you felt grateful for the impact of a particular person, have a go at writing a letter to show them your appreciation. If you need support, there’s a model letter here.
- Alternatively, write out what you feel grateful for as a diary entry.
- If you’re feeling more creative, you could instead turn your thoughts into a poem.
