Wellness Wednesday - June 10, 2020

Our theme this week is self-care. It’s not uncommon for us to spend time focused on taking care of others while forgetting to take time to look after our own needs. This is especially important in our current circumstances since isolation and other restrictions can make it difficult to participate in some of the activities we enjoy. We hope the resources this week will support you with your own self-care and help you encourage and remind other people in your lives to practice self-care as well.

Here are this week’s Mental Health learning opportunities for parents and families:

Parent Presentations

This week’s presentation focuses on Self-Care. Successful Families, Successful Kids Wellness Coach Mackenzie Martin discusses self-care, why it is important for our mental health, strategies you can use to care for yourself, and the seven pillars of self-care. This video will be available for viewing until Wednesday, June 24. Self-Care

In case you missed last week’s presentation on Self-Compassion, here is the link. It will be available for viewing until Wednesday, June 17. Self-Compassion

quaranTEAM Connect

This week’s quaranTEAM Connect was created by Wellness Coach Brittney Streeter. Click HERE to watch with your family! This video will be available for viewing until Wednesday, June 24.

Each week one of our Wellness Coaches will create a new quaranTEAM Connect video for families to watch together. Each video includes fun activities that promote mental wellness and connection.
