Wellbeing Pillar week 4 – Toxic Friendships & Relationships

Recognizing warning signs within relationships is crucial for maintaining healthy connections. Whether it’s a friendship or a romantic partnership, certain behaviors can indicate that the relationship may be becoming toxic. These signs include a lack of trust, breakdowns in communication, constant criticism, unbalanced dynamics, repeated boundary violations, lack of accountability, and feeling stuck in the relationship. By paying attention to these warning signs and trusting our instincts, we can protect our well-being and foster relationships that are supportive, respectful, and uplifting.

Wellbeing Pillar week 3 – Microaggressions

Microaggressions, though often subtle, can wield a significant impact on friendships. These seemingly harmless comments or actions may unknowingly undermine trust and connection. Addressing and understanding these nuances is essential for cultivating inclusive, supportive friendships. By fostering open communication and mutual respect, we can create spaces where all friends feel valued and understood.

Leysin our first ski weekend.

We had a wonderful week-end in Leysin! Over the weekend, our boys had the opportunity to enjoy many winter activities. Many of them decided to conquer the Swiss slopes by skiing or snowboarding with an instructor while others decided to visit Glacier 3000 where they enjoyed the fresh air and the views. In the evening, they had the chance to discover and enjoy typical mountain dishes such as raclette.
