Mental Wellness Wednesday

This Wednesday we would like to encourage you all to take care of your mental wellness. The Child Mind Institute is an independent, national nonprofit dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. Today they are teaching us about being mindful. These are great exercises for any age!

- Mindfulness means to pay attention, on purpose, to what is happening right now, without judging it or trying to change it. 

- Mindfulness helps to build brain muscles so you can have better focus, attention, and self-control. 

- Mindfulness also helps you to pay attention to how you feel, and it can help you to decide what to do with that feeling. 

- Just like anything new, the more you practice, the easier it gets!

Mindful Breathing

A good place to start with mindfulness is your breath, because you are always breathing. Mindfulness is not just breathing - it’s focusing all your attention on your breath (or something else in the present moment). When your mind wanders, gently bring it back.

Good Fats!

Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don’t shy away! Avocados are full of healthy, beneficial fats that help to keep you full and satiated. When you consume fat, your brain receives a signal to turn off your appetite. Eating fat slows the breakdown of carbohydrates, which helps to keep sugar levels in the blood stable. Fat is essential for every single cell in the body. Eating healthy fats supports skin health, enhances the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, and may even help boost the immune system.
