Happy Spring everyone! Hope this message finds everyone doing well and enjoying this spring weather. Finally the sun is shining, the days are getting longer, and weather is getting warmer. Yay! Smiles all around. 🙂
Here’s a message I sent to teachers at my school as a wrap-up to our year-long wellness initiative:
I have thoroughly enjoyed being your monthly dose of wellness reminders, but have you? Would you like to see this initiative continue? I will be sending out a short survey to get your input. Keep an eye out for that!
Some things we have been up to lately:
- Running & Walking Outside
- Ragnar Relay Race
- Barre Teacher Training
- Strength Training
- Red Sox games
- Gatherings with friends and family
What else have you been up to take care of yourselves? Stop by or send me a message.
Now is the best time of year to start thinking about YOU again… Longer days, warmer weather, more activities and social gatherings outside. Remember that YOU matter and in order to take care of everyone in your life, you have to take care of YOU.
My favorite time of the year is coming – the availability fresh and local vegetables and fruit from a wide range of farmers markets and local farms. If you follow me on social media, you know how much we love gardening, but we love our local farm just as much! Try to take advantage of the local vegetables and fruit right around us this season. We really are very fortunate to have so many farms and farmers markets in our area. Many of the farms have activities for kids and families and events on the weekends during the spring, summer and early fall months. If you’re interested in having a weekly share of fresh veggies, consider joining a CSA and support one of our local farms. Whatever you choose, take advantage of the seasonal fruits and veggies and try to choose real, local, properly raised, whenever possible. Here is a great site to look up local farms, farmers markets and CSAs. http://www.localharvest.org/boston-ma
Just a reminder that you are invited to a Nutrition and Wellness talk this Friday, May 20th at 1:45 as an end of the year wrap-up to our wellness initiative. Please feel free to stop by for some goodies and interesting conversations. I am looking forward to it!
Now, get outside and get some Vitamin D from that beautiful spring sunshine! ☀️
Be well ~
