D R I N K M O R E W A T E R
Bring a bottle of water with you wherever you go.
You can download an app on your phone to remind you to take a drink.
It sounds funny, but having a reminder on our phone can really help create a habit.

Moving can be anything from cleaning the house and the yard
to dancing and stretching. Move to get your heart pumping and blood circulating!
L A U G H M O R E
Laughing can instantly lift your mood. If your feeling down,
know that you can choose to switch gears by watching a funny video or
make someone else laugh. Laughing is contagious!
C R E A T E M O R E
Create something. Even if it's a short and easy project!
Paint, build, write. It can give a sense of joy when being
immersed in a project and can be a form of meditation where you
feel calm and at ease.

Sleeping is such a huge part of our wellbeing!

a good night sleep:
Go outside during the day.
Limit caffeine intake (finish drinking coffee before 2pm)
Move during the day to tire your body.
Finish eating 2 hours before bed.
Limit screens in dark rooms before bed.
B E M O R E I N N A T U R E
Take a walk in the trails, go near the ocean, listen to the birds.
There are many ways we can enjoy nature.
C O N N E C T M O R E
Human connections are crucial for our survival. We are social beings and we
need to feel connected to others to be motivated to participate in society and be happy. Call your mom or go walk with a friend. What would you like to do to connect with someone?
W R I T E M O R E (J O U R N A L)
Journaling can look different for each person. It can be used as a place to
list what we are grateful for or a place to release our stress and concerns.
Writing can be a great form of therapy.
B E M O R E P R E S E N T
When we are safe in the present moment and we're not thinking about the past nor
the future, we naturally start feeling more calm. The present moment is all that really exists, the rest is in our thoughts.
A C C E P T M O R E
Resistance to things we cannot control can only bring us pain. If we choose to accept
the things we cannot control like past experiences or inevitable situations, our outlook on life
might change, we might feel lighter and happier.
L O V E M O R E
Do more of what you love. What activities bring you joy?
Surround yourself with people that support you and bring out your authentic self.
B R E A T H E M O R E
We live in a stressful society. When we're stressed, our heart beats faster and our breathing shortens, not letting our lungs fully expand. Taking 5-10 min of deep belly breathing can lower stress instantly, slow our heart rate and bring the right amount of oxygen to our organs.
*Belly breathing is raising your belly, breathing in by your nose and lowering your belly towards the spine, breathing out by your mouth.
R E L A X M O R E
Taking time to relax and read a book can feel unproductive for some. We're constantly checking off our to-do lists and filling our days as much as we can. We forget that our body needs to refuel, and the only way it can do that is by taking breaks.
Here's a total body relaxation video:

We're never praised for doing nothing. Doing nothing is as important as doing something. Mindfulness meditation is a perfect example of how beneficial it is to be still.
Here's how you can practice mindfulness meditation:
Sit in a comfortable position
If you're in a seated position, feel the floor underneath your feet. If you're laying down, feel the surface of the furniture touching your back, your arms, your legs.
Notice your breath. Breathing in and out slowly.
Listen to your surroundings without judgement.
Do this exercise as long as you need to.
Here are all the benefits of mindfulness meditation:
