This Sunday we discussed the importance of staying healthy not only in our bodies, but also in our thinking. In addition to knowing how to care for our own mental health, our UU principles suggest that we help others who are struggling as well. How can we encourage a friend that is feeling sad or worried? We explored this concept with a yoga story about a frog stuck in a tree, which we acted out using various yoga poses. Ultimately, the protagonist can’t take the frog out of the tree herself, but must instead help the frog find the confidence to come down itself. Finally, we drew a scene from the story.
