Planning Your Time While Virtual Learning 

 

Weekly Challenge

This is a fun opportunity to check-in virtually with each other. Take a moment for yourself. These daily activities are not mandatory and are not meant to take a lot of time. Choose one or try them all, it’s up to you! Please know that you are missed. Be well and take care of yourself and those you love. You are helping us all by staying home!

 

Mindful Monday

 

How to feel less out-of-control when facing the unknown can be achieved through “effortful optimism” Optimism can be thought of as reframing adversity in a healthy and realistic way while taking ownership of finding solutions. 

Three things to tell yourself:
1. This will not last forever.
2. This is not changing everything
3. My efforts will make a difference.

Here is a quick video about exercising optimism:

Grati-Tuesday

Today we show our gratitude for Planet Earth in honor of Earth Day Tomorrow.

Power up on gratitude and power down on electricity for one hour.
What to do during that hour?

Celebrate under the full moon. 
Dance under the stars. 
Dine by candlelight. 
Count your blessings. 
Go for a walk.

“Observe the fresh insights that flood your own awareness and the world consciousness, as we spend at least one hour on Earth Day giving thanks to Mother Nature with our words and actions," said Natalie Pace, organizer of the Earth Day Gratitude celebration.

Wellness Wednesday

 

Today’s Wellness Wednesday falls on Earth Day!

There are 8 dimensions of wellness. 
1.Emotional
2. Spiritual
3. Intellectual
4. Physical
5. Environmental
6. Financial

7. Occupational
8. Social

One idea about the 8 dimensions of wellness is if you can change your habits, you can change the quality of your life.

Today we will focus on intellectual wellness.

Intellectual wellness is important for everyone. It is not just about the classes we take or an IQ score, but rather it’s being open to new ideas, seeking personal growth through learning new skills, being creative, or exploring new activities. Gaining and maintaining intellectual wellness will keep the brain stimulated and stave off boredom and loneliness. The brain is like any other muscle in our body, it needs to be exercised to do its best work!

* Doing games or puzzles that stimulate the brain such as crosswords, Sudoku, brain teasers, or logic games.
* Reading for fun – yes, for fun! 
* Talk to someone who has a difference of opinion and ask them questions, get curious.
* Learn a new skill or find an online class
