Life Skill Session on’ Body Positivity’

Body positivity refers to the assertion that all people deserve to have a positive body image, regardless of how society and popular culture view ideal shape, size, and appearance. Feelings, thoughts, and behaviours related to body image can have a major impact on one’s mental health. Keeping this thought in mind, life skills sessions on ‘Body Positivity’ were conducted for the students of classes VI-VIII of K.R. Mangalam World School, G.K-II . The aim of the session was to encourage an acceptance of self and others with regard to body size and appearance.

The session began with a video on different body shapes and sizes. The meaning of body image was explained to them. A worksheet was also shown to them with few statements that helped them to understand their attitudes, thoughts and feelings about their body. Students praised their body and they also spoke about the things they were grateful for. 

The video and worksheet made the students understand that worrying about body image is a natural part of growing up but no matter what the shape or size of the body is, everyone is unique and beautiful.

MENSTRUAL HYGIENE WORKSHOP

Menstruation is a natural part of the reproductive cycle. However, in most parts of the world, it remains a taboo and is rarely talked about. Cultural practices and taboos around menstruation negatively impact the lives of women and girls, and reinforce gender inequities and exclusion. Moreover, studies have proved a direct link between poor menstrual hygiene and urinary or reproductive tract infections and other illnesses.

Keeping this in mind, K.R. Mangalam World School, GK II organized a virtual workshop on 17th and 18th December, 2020 on Menstrual Hygiene of girls in collaboration with Global Hunt Foundation. Ms Ankita, the resource person, conducted the workshop and the same was attended by over 140 girls of classes IV-VIII. Discussions veered on orienting the health educators and school girls  on good menstrual hygienic practices such as use of sanitary napkins; washing and cleaning; proper disposal of sanitary napkins, followed by precautions to be taken during the period and dietary habits, so, as to enable them to lead a healthy reproductive life in future.

It was a well-organized and well conducted workshop. After the workshop, Q/A session was conducted and each and every doubt of the girls on menstrual hygiene was cleared. The girls of classes IV to VIII were very happy and content after attending the workshop and mentioned that they will be more conscious about maintaining hygiene in future.

REPORT: LIFE SKILLS

 “Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience”- Jon Kabat Zinn

Mindfulness is the practice of purposely bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment. The goal of mindfulness is to wake up to the inner workings of our mental, emotional and physical processes. It helps us put some space between ourselves and our reactions, breaking down our conditioned responses. Research has shown that helping students learn how to self-regulate their behaviours through mindfulness has a pronounced positive effect in terms of reduced conflict, controlling impulsivity and focus. Keeping this thought in mind, life skills sessions on mindfulness were conducted for the students of classes VI-VIII.

The session began with a mindful check where students narrowed attention to their breath and expanded their awareness. After expanding awareness, the activity was conducted. Students were shown a video and even asked what they understood by being present. A discussion took place and students shared their different perspectives. Then, different breathing techniques were taught to them. The session ended with a mindful check out.

In the next week, the session began with mindful check in. Students were explained the importance of thoughts and how understanding ones thoughts leads to mindfulness of an individual. They were shown a video explaining thoughts and how different types of thoughts have an effect on an individual. The students took part in a discussion on different kinds of thoughts. They enthusiastically participated in the activity.
