Wellness Wednesday

Blocking the sunset on a perfect afternoon

COVID-19 has taken much from us, but it has also given us something special. The gift of time. The opportunity to come together, work together, to learn and grow together. I saw something the other day that was perfectly stated – “When we can’t go outside. Look inside.” This can be a transformative time for us all.

I encourage you to take a moment to bring into your hearts our students and families, the people who are in need, the ones who need our help even more during this time. I invite you to practice one of my favorite loving-kindness practices. Place your hands on your heart and please repeat:

May I be happy

May I be healthy

May I ride the waves of my life

May I find peace no matter what

Now bring to mind images of those you love or a person you want to send loving-kindness to today and repeat:

May you be happy

May you be healthy

May you ride the waves of your life

May you find peace no matter what

I wish you well. 😊
