March Wellness Reminder – Gratitude

As we come up on the one-year anniversary of the pandemic in the U.S., we want to take this time to remind people to reconnect with your wellness. It is important to find moments in your week for self-care as we both process the difficult past year and prepare for the next one ahead of us. 

Wellness Tip of the Week: Gratitude 

During times of crisis, hardship, and turmoil, it is more important than ever to take time to be aware of and express gratitude and appreciation in order to improve our mental wellbeing and resilience. 

  1. Start a gratitude journal by writing something each day that you are grateful for. If you need help getting started, there are many websites and apps to provide suggestions and prompts. 
  2. Be aware of the small kindnesses and thoughtful gestures of people around you and let others know you have noticed by acknowledging their actions. This can be simple: a wave, a thumbs up, a smile, a thank you. For important people in your life, take a little extra time to tell them what you have noticed and exactly how it helped you. 
  3. Appreciate your own strengths, resilience, hard work, or kindness. Think of times in the past when life was hard, maybe even the worst moments of your life, and take a moment to appreciate the strength it took for you to make it through. Maybe even reflect on what you learned and how you grew from that challenge. Give yourself credit and acknowledgement, because you deserve it.
