Your Wellness Wednesday Tips


A group of Kettering staff came together to consider ways they might help each of us learn some new ways to take care of ourselves. That was the genesis 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


  • Breathe: Continue your breathing exercises but add some relaxing music to your final set of breathing exercises. Classical tunes such as Mozart is a great choice and available on most smart devices. This is the Rule of Seven. Breathe in through your nose for seven seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds and then exhale through your mouth for seven seconds. Repeat seven times. This can help calm you down and immediately bring a sense of peace.
  • Exercise: Build to a longer walk up to 15-30 minutes this week.


Other Considerations:

  • Take a 5-minute mini-break every hour: You can’t stay focused all the time. No matter how efficient you work, you’ll always get distracted, let your mind wander or end up spending time reading e-mail (and blogs) instead. One way to increase your focus is to stand up once an hour for five minutes. The change of pace and posture can make it easier to begin again and be productive.
  • Eat healthy and green food: It is tempting to order pizza, but it really pays off to take your time to cook and eat nutritious, healthy food. Not only will it help you achieve better, but it will also boost your mood! Don’t have access to a stove?  Consider something you can put together without cooking such a a small fruit salad topped with yogurt, granola and honey.
