March Newsletter:
How Do We Commit to Well-Being?


On some level, we all know that our well-being matters. 

And yet, when push comes to shove in our day-to-day lives, we often forget ourselves in service of our communities.  If we want to make changes in ourselves and our communities, it helps to practice certain behaviors that support that change.

1. Decide non-negotiables. Working on a Sunday? No. Eating Little Debbies? (maybe for you that's a no, and for someone else its a maybe.). Yelling at colleagues? Never. Knowing what our values are and where we're unwilling to budge can help us stay on track for self-care.

2. Surround yourself with support. If we want to change habits, individually or collectively, we need to have people around us who are walking in the same direction. On a basic level, get a healthy lunch buddy. As community, decide on getting our support with Well-Being Professional Development. We're currently booking for 2017-2018 and have added workshops in Healthy Communication and Managing Transferred Trauma. We can all benefit from support.

3. Be gentle with yourself. Change takes time. Be as gentle and forgiving with yourself as you would be with a student. Notice small changes and honor yourself and your community for them. Gratitude and positivity make a huge difference in our well-being.
