Building a wellbeing routine
How the Stix remote and app can help you build a wellbeing routine on your return to school
As the half-term holidays come to an end, it's time to start thinking about getting back into the swing of things and re-establishing a solid routine for the rest of the school term. Whether you're a child or a parent, returning to school after a break can be a difficult adjustment.
If you’re looking for ways to support your child’s wellbeing on their return to school, then look no further than the Stix Remotes. Here are 5 ways the Stix can help you build a mindfulness routine to support mental wellbeing:
How Stix can help you build a wellbeing routine
Earning rewards for your actions help provide positive reinforcement for completing tasks. The brain releases dopamine in response to the achievement of completing a goal, providing a sense of wellbeing and accomplishment. The combination of a dopamine release from gamification and endorphins released from mindfulness activities makes the Stix experience unique.
What’s the point in rewards if you can’t do anything with them? The Stix app provides rewards for children, which they can then use in the Monster Wardrobe to customise their monster.
Building a day streak
Looking back on your progress and seeing your day streak helps to provide kids with sense of momentum, helping children feel like they are on a roll, increasing their motivation to continue! Furthermore, achieving your ‘highest day streak yet’ adds further positive reinforcement to their actions.
How often do you want to practice mindfulness? Whether you want to do 10 minutes a day or 10 minutes a week, setting goals on the Stix app allows you to track progress, stay focussed and keep motivated!
The reminders on the Stix app help to provide a gentle nudge at a time of your convenience to help remind you to practice your mindful activities. Would you set your Stix reminder for before school or before bed?
It is easy to fall out of a routine, and you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself if you do. Remember the reasons you are integrating mindfulness into your routine; whether that is to reduce stress, anxiety or to improve focus and sleep. We hope the Stix app can help you kick-off your journey!
