Week 8 | Apr 12 - 20
This Week's Focus: Social Wellness
Physical distancing vs. Social distancing - many people are taking the social distancing to heart and are forgetting that it is human nature to feel connected with others! While we are practicing physical distancing don't forget to reach out to others, chat with someone in the grocery store if you see them, and remember to stay 6' away!
Random Acts of Kindness - Did you know that people who practice kindness live longer, healthier lives? Doing a random act of kindness gives a boost to the receiver, even more to the giver and the most to the onlooker!! Ideas: hold the door for someone, distribute some flowers, buy someone a coffee, or do something special for your spouse or loved one.
Notes of Gratitude - call or text someone and tell them how much you care. Take time and put together a hand written note and send it to someone and tell them how much they mean to you!
3 Good Things – For 14 consecutive days, write down three positive things that either happened to you or are grateful for from the day. This tool has been shown to be as effective as a mild dose of antidepressant! Want to take it a step further? Starting Monday, 4/20 join the community 14 day challenge! More information and link to come Monday.
