Now that students aren’t spending much or any of the day in school, there is a mistaken belief that families need to do “big” things with their extra time together. However, wellness is determined by small, intentional, positive daily acts. This means that wellness is within each person’s reach.
A daily walk in the sunlight, an extra few minutes talking in-person or on the phone with friends or family, or a five-minute daily meditation can have a big impact on a person’s overall wellness.
We want to offer you a summer wellness challenge. Make this summer, a summer of small things. Take 5-30 minutes per day to attempt an intentional, positive wellness practice.
We will continue to share tips and ideas each week for these small, essential actions that can enhance wellness for families. We hope you have a great week!
