#WellnessWednesday: Celebrate Today


The semester is in full swing now! Remember to take time to take care of yourself so we can be the best we can be for our students =)



SELF-CARE TIP:
Write a list of things you’re grateful to have in your life and post it somewhere you can see it often. We have a tendency to focus on the negative, so remind yourself of the good stuff.

KINDNESS CHALLENGE:
Write positive affirmations or inspirational quotes on small pieces of paper, then hide them in random places for strangers to find.

Check out our Wellness Wednesday Relaxation Lounge for students to find their “zen” in a calming, relaxing space on campus Wednesdays at lunch.

Do You Get Enough Sleep?

DID YOU KNOW?

According to the Centers for Disease Control, two thirds of teenagers suffer from chronic sleep deprivation.


Let's practice good "sleep hygiene" as we transition from a summer sleep schedule to a school sleep schedule.

Regular bedtimes are important! At least eight hours of sleep a night is ideal.

"A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything." Irish proverb

Wellness Wednesday: Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today #BeWellRedDevils


Happy Wednesday Red Devils!

As an effort to increase our social/emotional supports on campus, the counselors will be sending Wellness Wednesday messages with our SUHi Community.

Our Wellness Wednesdays messages will consist of SELF-CARE tips and a KINDNESS CHALLENGE:
·        Self-care is crucial for our physical, emotional and mental well-being. In order for us to be the best we can be for our students, we have to take care of ourselves.
·        Kindness is very important in creating a sense of community and belonging. One act of small kindness can release an enormous chain of positive events. We hope our weekly challenge will encourage our entire SUHi Family to “choose kindness”.


Today’s Wellness Wednesday Message:


SELF CARE:
Use your calendar to schedule “me time” to do something you enjoy.

KINDNESS CHALLENGE:
Start a cycle of encouragement. Tell someone near you what you appreciate about them. They may return the favor when you need it most.
