Wellness Wednesday: Letting Go

The weather is cooler and the nights are crisp. Find some time before bed to reflect on the day’s events and set intentions for a new day. 


Self-Care Tip:
Take five to 10 minutes before bed to focus on what’s going on inside. Notice any parts of you that don’t feel relaxed. Invite them closer, listen to them, pay close attention and discover what their worries, fears, concerns, or other feelings are. Witness each part. Once all parts have relaxed, confirm with yourself that everything’s going to be all right and fall blissfully into sweet dreams.

Kindness Challenge:
Write to a former teacher that impacted you. Just as we all love to hear from our students and how we’ve made an impact on their personal and academic growth, those who have helped us become the great educators we are would love to hear from us as well =)

Please continue to encourage students to experience the Wellness Wednesday Relaxation Lounge in the Counseling Center at lunch on Wednesdays. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress. Nurse Wegener also has a relaxation space for students who need.

Wellness Wednesday: Helping is Caring



Fall Break is just around the corner! There’s lots to get done. Ask for help if you need it. There’s always someone to lend a helping hand if you ask.

Self-Care Tip:
Ask for help when you need it. It sounds simple, but trying to handle everything without help causes stress and anxiety for a lot people.

There have been many conversations on campus around suicide prevention with the messages being shared by our peer mediators and after-school program in collaboration with Suicide Prevention Month.

One of the most common questions that comes up is: what kinds of actions should you take if someone you know may be thinking about suicide? There is a lot that a single person can do to help prevent suicide, but the biggest thing you can do when facing the issue with someone you know is to listen, and make sure to get them help. We have a list of things that you can say, and resources to connect them to here, as well as a video that covers how to help a friend in need.

Kindness Challenge:
Send an encouraging note, text, or email to someone you know who needs it. An encouraging message to keep focused at the end of the first quarter will be greatly appreciated!

Please continue to encourage students to experience the Wellness Wednesday Relaxation Lounge in the Counseling Center at lunch on Wednesdays. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress. Nurse Wegener also has a relaxation space for students who need.

Have a wonderful Fall Break everyone! Welln

Wellness Wednesday: ACT #EachMindMatters

Happy Wellness Wednesday!

Monday marked the beginning of Suicide Prevention Week. During this week individuals and organizations around the country join their voices together in order to broadcast the message that suicide can be prevented, and to give as many people as possible the tools and resources to support themselves and those around them. To view films about suicide prevention, visit: www.directingchangeCA.org.

For tools and resources specific for schools and youth, visit the Each Mind Matters Suicide Prevention Week Toolkit: www.eachmindmatters.org/SPW2018.



Remember, if you know of someone who needs help: ACT!

Acknowledge: Do take it seriously. If you recognize warning signs in your friend or loved one, it is very important to take them seriously.

Care: Do let the person know you care and understand. Continue to be available to your friend and show interest and support.

Tell: Do get professional help immediately. Reach out to a trusted adult on campus or assist them by contacting a mental health professional through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You can also call 911 or assist them with getting to the nearest emergency room.

Self-Care Tip:Make an inspiration collage and hang it where you can see it. Use it to help generate new ideas and thoughts when you need them.

Kindness Challenge:Ask someone “how are you today?” Practice active listening.

Come and experience the Wellness Wednesday Relaxation Lounge in the Counseling Center at lunch on Wednesdays. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress. Nurse Wegener also has a relaxation space for students who need.
