Wellness Wednesday: Just Breathe #BeWellRedDevils

Happy Wellness Wednesday! 


Inhale….Exhale…

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.

Happy Wellness Wednesday! #BeWellRedDevils

Welcome back Red Devils! We hope you had a wonderful summer break!

As many of you know, the work of school counselors falls into the three ASCA domains: academic, college/career, and social/emotional.

In an effort to increase our social/emotional supports on campus, various groups on campus will be sharing Wellness Wednesday messages and coordinating activities for all students and staff.

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.



Our Wellness Wednesdays messages will consist of SELF-CARE tips, a KINDNESS CHALLENGE, and an AFFECTIVE STATEMENT:
  • 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”. 
  • What are Affective Statements? They are often described as personal expressions of feelings in response to others' positive or negative behaviors. Wellness Wednesday will now include affective statement stems to help connect students with how their behavior is “affecting” or impacting self or others.
To spread the good news of our wellness efforts, please use the hashtag #BeWellRedDevils in sharing your Wellness Wednesday activities.

Today’s Wellness Wednesday Message:

Self-Care:
Write a letter to your future June 2019 self. Focus on what you hope to accomplish and achieve.

Kindness Challenge:
Smile, make eye contact, and say hello to others on your way to class. Smiling signals friendliness and encourages positive interactions.

Affective Statements:
I am proud to hear...

Be Well Red Devils!

Experience Claremont McKenna College for FREE



A warm hello from Claremont McKenna College! We are writing today with information about our 2019 Fall Preview Fly-In Program. Preview is designed for first-generation college students and students from diverse backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. Our program aims to provide high school seniors with an inside look into the life of a CMCer! All transportation costs, housing accommodations, and meals during the program will be covered by CMC.

The Preview application is available now through August 15, 2019. Students can apply at connect.cmc.edu/preview. To be considered for the program, students must complete an application including 6 short response essays and submit a high school transcript and a list of their fall term courses.  All of this can be submitted in the application. Applicants and their counselors will be notified of our final selection by Tuesday, August 23. 2019. During the program students will have the opportunity to attend classes, explore our eleven research institutes, attend a presentation at the Athenaeum, connect with current students and professors, and enjoy the perks of the Southern California sun!

CMC is a comprehensive applied liberal arts college. We foster a close-knit, collaborative, diverse community dedicated to the free exchange of ideas and inspired by our mission to prepare students for thoughtful and responsible leadership in the private, public, and social sectors. CMC ranks among the nation's premier liberal arts colleges, enrolling over 1300 students who are eager to engage in intellectually stimulating discussion to develop practical solutions to evolving challenges. With a need-blind policy where students are admitted without regard to their family's financial resources, and our pledge to meet 100% of demonstrated financial need, CMC is committed to ensuring diversity in its student body.

All-Expenses-Paid Visits for High School Seniors to Williams College

All-Expenses-Paid Visits for High School Seniors
Please encourage your students to apply for the 2019 Windows on Williams (WOW) program by either our July 1 or August 1 deadline. WOW provides more than 200 high-achieving seniors the opportunity to spend three all-expenses-paid days on campus. Preference will be given to students who couldn’t otherwise afford to visit.

We offer two deadlines to give students flexibility: Students who want to hear from us by July 20 should apply by the July 1 deadline; those who want to hear by August 20 should apply by August 1. Please contact us with any questions.

Major Financial Aid Additions
In addition to our longstanding practices of meeting 100% of demonstrated need and providing free textbooks and course materials to all financial aid recipients, I’m thrilled that we were able to announce the following series of initiatives over the last year to provide even greater support for Williams students:
  • Our new “Free Summer” initiative gives students the opportunity to select up to two summers during their Williams career when their summer earnings contribution will be replaced by additional grant funding from the college.We hope this new policy will allow students to consider educationally valuable but unpaid or low-paid summer opportunities that they otherwise couldn’t.
  • The Williams Health Insurance Grant now covers the full cost of health insurance for all aid recipients who don’t have insurance that meets the college’s requirements. Students also have access to an Emergency Medical Fund to cover the cost of unanticipated medical expenses like new eyeglasses, emergency dental care, etc. 
  • All financial aid recipients now get free storage for their personal belongings during summers and study abroad.
  • Through the First Yard Fund, incoming first-years with the greatest financial need will receive a $300 startup grant in mid-July to help them buy personal items they need for college, like a winter coat and boots, dorm room supplies, etc.
To get a sense of how affordable Williams can be, check out MyinTuition. In less than two minutes students can complete six questions and get an accurate and individualized sense of cost and financial aid.

We Hope to See You This Year!
Whether it’s on the road or on campus, we’re always eager to connect in person. If you’re planning a college tour and want to visit Williams, please let us know. We welcome visits at any time of year and offer travel stipends to high schools and community-based organizations who serve low-income students. If you’re interested in learning about how you and your students can connect with Williams in your area, please don’t hesitate to be in touch with your regional admission officer.

Wellness Wednesday: Finding Humor #BeWellRedDevils


Happy Wellness Wednesday!

Do you know what happens to our bodies when we laugh?
· Levels of stress hormones decrease

· Heart, lungs, and muscles are stimulated

· Increased activity in the brain’s reward system

· Endorphins – the body’s natural pain blockers- are released


10 TIPS FOR INCORPORATING HUMOR INTO YOUR LIFE
· List three funny things that happened to you each day

· Find a TV show or movie that tickles your funny bone.

· Reach out to someone who gets your sense of humor. Share the funny things that have happened to you recently or reminisce

· Have a game night. Charades is a classic, and there are also plenty of newer card and board games that are designed with humor in mind.

· Spend time with an animal or a child. Their antics are almost always good for a laugh.


May is Mental Health Month and Mental Health America is using the theme #4Mind4Body this month to explore the topics of animal companionship (including pets and support animals), spirituality, humor, work-life balance, and recreation and social connections as ways to boost mental health and general wellness.

You can download the tool kit here:

http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/mental-health-month-2019-toolkit-download

Self-Care Tip:
Quiet time: Balance your family, social, and work demands with quiet alone time. Activities such as listening to relaxing music, taking a bubble bath, taking a quiet walk, writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal, doing a hobby, or watching a favorite television program or movie are great ways to unwind.


Kindness Challenge:
Tell a joke. Here are some fun ones: http://redtri.com/best-jokes-for-kids/slide/1


Affective Statement
I am so proud to see/hear . . .

Our relaxation room in the counseling center is housed in office #141. Many students have been using this space during the school day as a calming place in the hustle and bustle of student life.

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.

Thanks to our SUHi Morale Pals who are spreading kindness on campus. We have a few more weeks to share the kindness!

Free Prom Dress with the Princess Project


Webinar on College Success

This series is a comprehensive webinar on college success and is inspired by Peter Pham's five years as an AVID tutor for La Quinta High School in Westminster, CA. He shares his process for choosing school and major and the strategies he used to graduate summa cum laude within four years. 

Exciting Opportunity for Sweetwater Students!


The Social Fabric Initiative, a program of the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice at the University of San Diego, is looking to spread the word about our program.  We were hoping you could pass this news along to any students who would be interested in applying for the program. This summer, high school students will collaborate in a small team, or Thread, with university Interns and a field-based Mentor to create a community change project. The Social Fabric Initiative’s goal is to engage youth as agents for change to build more connected and peaceful communities in San Diego.

For more information on the Social Fabric Initiative, feel free to take a look at our website, read our new Kroc Insight, and watch this video explaining the launch of the program.  All information regarding the application process can be found on the Get Involved page on the site. Deadline to apply is April 22nd.

We understand that our tuition may present an obstacle to students interested in applying. Please encourage anyone interested that we offer scholarships for up to 100% tuition. These scholarships are not just awarded based on need; we also award scholarships based on passion for the program. To apply for a scholarship, just fill out the scholarship section at the end of the Youth Peace Leader application.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best,
