4 Types of Wellbeing
During this unprecedented time, here are gentle reminders for self-care. While far from comprehensive, these suggestions can remind us all that simple acts can have big results.
Emotional Wellbeing
  • What is your purpose? Mine is to stay healthy and continue to work, while supporting my family, friends, and community.
  • Express gratitude and find little things that make you happy. Consider a hobby or journal. I like to garden. (Radishes, left)
  • Separate what is within your control from what is not. Get the facts from trusted sources and only at regular intervals.
  • Challenge yourself to stay in the present. Notice the sights, sounds, tastes, and other sensory experiences in your immediate moment.
  • Engage in mindfulness activities such as meditation.
  • Pay attention to your body. Get physical activity, plenty of sleep, exercise, and spend time outdoors.
  • Vitamin D, fresh air, and exercise help both our physical and mental health.
  • Consider daily walks, yoga, and online apps for exercise.
  • You are what you eat. Be safe, eat fresh, buy local.
  • Do what helps YOU feel a sense of safety. This will be different for everyone else, and it’s important to not compare yourself to others. 
  • Smile.

Ergonomic Wellbeing
  • Sitting for too long can negatively impact your circulatory health, so focus on leg exercises and stretching.
  • All work stations are not created equal -- make sure your work area is comfortable and productive
  • Eyestrain is a common condition from staring at the computer or other digital devices for too long -- be sure to take regular breaks, blink frequently, minimize glare, and use proper lighting.
  • Taking just five minutes out of your day to clear your mind helps improve your overall productivity and focus.
  • Keep in contact with loved ones, co-workers, children, and pets. Check in with neighbors and give thanks to the people who are essential workers.
  • Stay connected and reach out for support. It can be comforting to share what you are experiencing with friends, family, co-workers, and those trained to help.
  • Help others and advocate for what you believe.
  • Sit quietly for 30 minutes everyday. Meditate.
