Hey Cambie, it’s Mental Health Week. This year is all about getting real about the way we feel. We do that by getting up close with our feelings so that we can identify them and name them. When we name how we feel rather than numbing it, we actually feel better. When we name our emotions, we can tame them. Take some time to consider how you are feeling today, give yourself permission to acknowledge your feelings.
In celebration of Mental Health Week Mrs. Wilding is inviting students and staff alike to join her in Walking for Wellness. If you would like to join meet Mrs. W at the picnic tables outside the rotunda at 12:15 TODAY and each day at lunch this week! Walking will be socially distanced and masks will be worn. Please note for Senior students who would like to participate – please wait outside by the picnic tables after dismissal or prior to arrival. Experts suggest that walking not only benefits your physical health, but also improves your mood and increases creativity. In addition to reducing chronic disease, promoting fitness and improving digestion it also improves your sleep habits! Walking is an easy thing you can do to take the first step towards improving your mental health today. See you at 12:15!
