AUGUST: FAMILY HEALTH AND WELLBEING MONTH
Focusing on family health and wellbeing in August is perfectly timed - Summer is winding down and back to school is on the horizon, which means shifts in our family's summer routines: bedtimes and morning wake-up times will likely change, family daily to-do lists will likely grow longer, and fitting after school activities like homework and school sports into already busy schedules can add to the stress that change in itself brings. This month, we focus on how to make transitions easier for the whole family!
This month, Mindful Mondays, focuses on techniques to help you and your family relax. We also focus on why it's important (as well as how) to take time for ourselves (busy moms and dads - this is for you!). In Healthy U Wednesdays, take a mental health checklist, learn how stress affects the brain, why social support is important for good mental health, and how to recognize depression and address it in ourselves and others. Next, the Thursday Health Series focuses on family health and wellbeing, providing tips on how to build healthier family health habits and more, and for those with a teen in the family, learn how to have open and honest conversations with your teen (yes, it can be done!). Unwind Time Fridays will have you ending the week on a relaxed and refreshed note!
