Wellness Wednesday: Respect

Happy New Year and Happy Wellness Wednesday!

Today's theme is respect. Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves. Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them. Respect  builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing.

This week we are starting the "SUHi Say Something" campaign. Because students play the most important role at our school in keeping our campus safe we are asking for them if they see something, to say something. 

They can really make a difference.

Bullying, substance abuse, relationship violence, and gang activity thrive in environments where bystanders tolerate activities that they know are wrong. Speaking out can make a difference in one person's life or even your whole school.

Making a difference isn't always easy; it can be uncomfortable to speak out for what is right. This form gives you a way to speak out anonymously.

Tips submitted through the below website are entirely confidential and completely anonymous.

 Kindness Challenge: Share an inspiring quote to give someone a boost today.

Self-Care Tip: Let go of being busy. Take breaks. You deserve it.

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.

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 ­čśÇ

Virtual Wellness Room

Please 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".
