Wellness Wednesday: Just Breathe #BeWellRedDevils

Happy Wellness Wednesday! 


Inhale and count 4...3...2…1…

Hold your breath and count 7…6…5…4…3…2…1…

Exhale and count 8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1…

The 4-7-8 breathing technique requires a person to focus on taking a long, deep breath in and out. Rhythmic breathing is a core part of many meditation practices as it promotes relaxation and can help with the following:

· reducing anxiety

· helping a person get to sleep

· managing cravings

· controlling or reducing anger responses

Because YELLOW stands for happiness, positivity, energy, optimism, and joy, we are asking for our campus community to wear YELLOW on Wednesdays to help promote our Wellness Wednesday efforts.

In collaboration with Wellness Wednesday, Mr. Garcia and the Peer Mediators will be hosting a GLOBAL FORGIVENESS DAY activity at lunch on Aug 27 and 28 outside room 506. Come by and create a “I’m Sorry” gram to share the spirit of forgiveness.

Self-Care Tip:
Lay on the floor on your back with your eyes closed for five minutes (or longer) and just breathe.

Kindness Challenge:
Give sincere compliments to three people today.

Affective Statement:
I’m so touched that you…

We also invite you to encourage your students to visit our Wellness Wednesday lounge in the counseling center at lunch every Wednesday. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress.

To spread the good news of our wellness efforts, please use the hashtag #BeWellRedDevils in sharing your Wellness Wednesday activities.

Be Well Red Devils!
