Life can get full with tests, relationships, future planning, extracurriculars, family time, staying on top of social media and more on your mind...and it can feel even more intense when most of it happens online. Taking care of yourself and those around you is key to staying healthy and whole…and one step closer to reaching those big goals and bold dreams you may not even have said out loud yet. Here are a few simple ways to make wellness an everyday priority.
Whether you’re a social butterfly or more of a lone ranger, having a couple people in your life that you can talk, laugh and vent with openly will benefit you both. Studying, exercising, or exploring a hobby together are natural, low-key ways of keeping communication lines open. And don’t forget – confiding in someone and being there for them to confide in are equally valuable!
Creativity can take so many forms – anything from moving your workspace to the other side of the room to writing a song to testing out a new recipe or workout plan. Try to find one way every day to get those creative juices flowing, whether by designing something new or just getting a fresh perspective on something all too ordinary.
We all know the drill – keep a balanced diet, get enough sleep and exercise. Stay inspired and motivated to pursue these three great wellness goals by finding fresh ways to incorporate them into your day. Check out some of our half-hour, at-home workouts for a start!
In the busyness (and sometimes drama) of high school life, be intentional about staying engaged with the world around you. Use all of your senses to stay alert to what you are experiencing, observing and initiating. Pause to be thankful for the little things, to find calm in the practice of good breathing and to understand the root of your frustrations more clearly.
