Wellness Wednesday: Reciprocity

Reciprocity is a mutual exchange of actions, goods, energy, time, emotion, etc. between two people.

Reciprocity is similar to a game of tennis or ping pong. There’s a rhythm or a flow of a back and forth exchange. 

When someone reciprocates our efforts, it can leave us feeling validated in our choices and friendship, energized to keep going in this friendship or relationship and give more, and leaves us with this overall sense that we are valued and appreciated.

What actions and energy are you sharing with the people you interact with every day? Are you building others up? Are you putting the "Golden Rule" into action and treating others the way you want to be treated?

Self-Care Tip: Focus on the good. Remember that tough times are inevitable, but they will also inevitably end. The key is to focus on the good, and you’ll get there eventually.

 Kindness Challenge: Thank someone you are grateful for and tell them why. 

We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. Click here to complete the SUHi Wellness Check-In. Your counselor will reach out to you 😀

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.

Virtual Wellness RoomPlease visit our Virtual Wellness Room to take a break from your daily routine. Do some breathing exercises, stretch, or play a game. It's OK to take a time out for a "brain break".
