Wellness Wednesday: Be the Sunshine #BeWellRedDevils


Happy Wellness Wednesday!



Every October, individuals from across the nation unite in a campaign to keep youth safe from bullying. Come visit the Peer Mediators in front of the band room at lunch to share some anti-bullying messages and goodies! Let’s spread kindness!

More info here:

It’s certainly easier to make assumptions about people than it is to spend time getting to know someone. We wanted to put assumptions to the test to see what we're missing out on because we're so busy assuming we already "know" a person. Join us as we discover why you should never judge a book by it’s cover in our series, Reverse Assumptions. We are all conditioned with certain biases. In this experiment, we challenged these biases by asking people to make assumptions about their partner's appearance without ever actually seeing their partner. 

When they flipped around to finally face each other, they were shocked by how wrong they were:


Self-Care
Take a moment at the end of each day and list a few good things that have happened. This can help refocus your emotions on all the positive things that happen each day, even when it doesn’t seem like it.

Kindness Challenge
Pick up 5 pieces of trash on your way to class  after nutrition break and lunch. 

Affective Statement:
I am so excited to hear/see...

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. 

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!
