Your Monday root word of the week is: esth/aesth, which means: feeling, sensation, beauty. This Latin root appears in many English words such as: esthetician - someone who beautifies; aesthetic - pertaining to a sense of beauty; kinesthesia - the sensation of bodily movement.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes.” – Ben Franklin
BRAINTEASER: What four-letter word can be written forward, backward or upside down, and can still be read from left to right?
Mindful Monday Moment - That was Guns and Roses with “Patience.” This is the theme of your Monday Mindfulness Moment. Patience is a quality that supports perseverance and fortitude when feelings of anxiety and stress are challenging. Patience offers a broader perspective, allowing you to see that moments of stress and anxiousness will pass in time. Try practicing some patience today, this week, and beyond in order to give yourself that broader perspective, to take away some of that stress, and to improve your overall interactions with other people.
Wednesday Wellness Wish - That was NF and “Let You Down.” This is the theme of your Wednesday Wellness Wish of the week. Sometimes, there is no worse feeling that thinking and/or knowing that you let someone down or let yourself down. If you believe that you did let someone down, it’s important to address the situation rather than just let the anxiety and even anger or disappointment build up. Have a conversation with that person or group of people and start the path to reconciliation and mutual understanding. If you feel that you let yourself down, try to figure out why it happened and start to come up with strategies to avoid repeating the same thing in the future. Sometimes it is unavoidable, so what you do afterwards means a lot. Reach out to friends and staff members if you need advice on how to handle these situations. We have your back.
