Wellbeing at school can and should be taught as part of an initiative to prevent mental ill health in our children but also as they grow into adults. If we give people a toolkit of skills to use throughout life we can build wellbeing and in turn resilience. Wellbeing is a practice that needs daily attention not just one off interventions. Just as we promote physical wellbeing with daily ways to stop the spread of germs for example we should be promoting daily habits that promote mental wellness.
Chill Your Beans have designed personal diaries which are available to schools packed full of wellbeing activities based on positive psychology concepts, research and interventions. The diaries last 41 weeks which is a whole school year giving students the holidays off to enjoy time with family and friends.
Diaries are available to order by filling out the order form here Wellbeing Diaries Order Form
You can also read the specific personal diary proposal here proposal for personal diaries
These personal diaries are grounded in positive psychology research and are designed to be accessible, affordable and importantly, promote independent learning. Many schools already have homework diaries to encourage organisation of home learning tasks. Utilising the space in these, I have added wellbeing activities which are fun, quick and easy to use independently for students from as young as 4 years through to 18.
Here are activities used entirely independently by age 10 and 12 years to the left and age 5 to the right. Children need autonomy in their wellbeing education which these diaries provide.

School Wellbeing Workshops and Classes
How do you approach the topic of whole school wellbeing? Practical classes and workshops are fun and give us practical tools to take away and try at home and throughout school life. Workshops can be for the students, the teachers can get involved and parents can even join in. The possibilities are endless and we can fit in around your school and what you would like to cover and achieve. Get in touch with what you are after and we will design a programme that fits your school and your aims.
