#WellnessWednesday: Identifying Strengths

Happy 27th Wellness Wednesday of the school year!

This week was the third session of our SUHi Rising Stars support group. This week we had our students interview one another to identify 5 strengths. Then, they had to list five more self-identified strengths. We had a very productive session!

In order for us to be the best version of ourselves, we need to focus on our strengths and grow from our weaknesses.  

Make a list of 10 things you are good at and post it where you can see it often.

Kindness Challenge
Learn how to say “please” & “thank you” in 5 different languages

Affective Statement
I am feeling frustrated about/by/to see/to hear that…

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. We are still looking for donations of a lamp or market lights, wellness books, decorative fountain, zen garden, and anything else to help make our wellness room a calming space.

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 day! #BeWellRedDevils
