Our positive mantras - Self Acceptance

Self-acceptance is the awareness of and satisfaction with one's strengths and weaknesses, the non-judgemental realistic assessment of one's talents, capabilities, and general worth. When we're self-accepting, we're able to embrace all facets of ourselves—not just the positive, more "esteem-able" parts including body acceptance and understanding our own ‘unique-worth”. Building self-acceptance is critical to wellbeing and mental health. Benefits of self-acceptance include increased positive emotions, sense of freedom, self-worth, autonomy, and self-esteem. Strong self-acceptance also decreases fear of failure, and self-critique, depressive symptoms and an overwhelming need for approval. The activities sourced and designed provide opportunities for children and students to explore and practice self‐acceptance. Learning to be more attentive to the thoughts and beliefs (especially judgments) will support positive relationships.

Crumble it up

Self-acceptance involves embracing who you are and your strengths. But it also involves acknowledging and owning your mistakes and weaknesses as they give you opportunities to grow. This activity explores people who are considered successful but have made mistakes and persevered to achieve their goals. . Students are encouraged to acknowledge a mistake or challenge ‘crumble it’ up and throw it away!
