Wellness does not need to be complicated. It can be as easy as listening to music, taking a walk, exercising, or finding any activity that places you in a calm state. It can be difficult trying to figure out where to start, so we (Beta Club and Nurse) are here to offer a wide range of ideas. This initiative was started due to the increase in mental health numbers across the United States. We hope to bring forth fun activities, statistics, teach different coping skills, and overall improve the mental health state of the students, even if it is only 30 minutes. We will be setting up a table in the commons on the first Wednesday of every month during lunch.
We understand how important wellness is, and the impact it has on our daily lives. We want to help encourage and support each student during their journey by targeting your mental, physical, or emotional well-being.
Some of the activities we have been able to provide so far:
*Create your own stress ball
*Write a positive affirmation
*Send another student a valentine's heart or shamrock
*Games, worksheets, and coloring activities
*Table talk conversations
*What do you do to improve your mental health?
*Stress relief by providing journals, rings, balls, stickers, etc.
*Handouts related to de-stressing, and creating a better mind set
If you or your student have any recommendations, please do not hesitate to reach out to the nurse, firstname.lastname@example.org
