Wellness Wednesday: Kindness Can Boost Your Self-Esteem

Happy Wellness Wednesday!

There's this widespread belief that you cannot love other people until you love yourself. To a certain extent, this is true, in that, when you care for yourself you are in the best position possible to care for others. 

Compassion is like a muscle that is strengthened with regular activity. Try to make it a habit to do at least one kind thing every day – however small it may be – so that you can reflect at the end of the day and feel assured that you made someone's day a bit better.

Self-Care Tip: 
Trust yourself. Trust you know what is best for you and block out outside negative influences that deter you from what you know is right for YOU.

Kindness Challenge:
Let a friend know why they're a great friend.

We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. We are just an email, video chat, or phone call away. 

Virtual Wellness Room

Please visit our Virtual Wellness Room to take a break from your online classes. Do some breathing exercises, stretch, or play a game. It's OK to take a time out in the middle of the day for a "brain break".
