Your Wellness Wednesday Tips


A group of Kettering staff members came together to consider ways they might help each of us learn some new ways to take care of ourselves. That was the genesis of Wellness Wednesdays, a weekly guide to self-care.
The goal is to offer ways to promote positive and healthy self-care and a way to reduce stress in your life. Each week, an overview of the week’s activities will be provided here.
Please join all of us in supporting our Kettering values by caring for ourselves and those around us and take some time to try one or more of the options presented. If you would like to provide feedback on Wellness Wednesdays and its activities or contribute an idea, email kuonline@kettering.edu.
  • Gratefulness Journal: Continue your gratitude journal; if you are struggling with things you are grateful for in your life, start small with “I am grateful for the sunshine today, for my parents, my friends,” and grow your ideas of gratefulness from there.
  • One Minute of Relaxation: Green Summer
  • Bibliotherapy: Continue reading Gratitude by Oliver Sacks, who is a neurologist who wrote “Awakenings,” which inspired the character played by Robin Williams in the movie of the same name.
Other considerations:
  • Do Something Kind Without Expecting Anything in Return: Consider sending an anonymous, handwritten note to someone to give them a compliment. Simply note something you noticed they did or said that was positive or helpful and drop the note under their door or office.
  • Say “Thank you,” to someone today.
