Mindfulness Monthly Memos

June’s Mindfulness Monthly Memo focuses on finding joy and happiness in life.  Feeling connected to other people is at the heart of happiness - theirs and ours.  Whether these connections are with our partners, families, friends, work colleagues, neighbors, or others in our community, they can all contribute to happiness and resilience.  So taking action to build, maintain, and strengthen our relationships is important.  As we wrap up the school year and move into the summer months, it’s a perfect time to reflect on our relationships and take steps to nurture them.  Here are some helpful tips:

  • Reach Out Regularly: Make a habit of checking in with friends, family, and colleagues.  A simple message or call can make a big difference in maintaining connections.
  • Plan Quality Time: Schedule time for activities that bring you joy with the people you care about.  Whether it’s a picnic in the park, a coffee date, or a virtual catch-up, quality time strengthens bonds.
  • Express Gratitude: Let the people in your life know you appreciate them.  A heartfelt thank-you note or small act of kindness can go a long way in fostering positive relationships.
  • Join Community Activities: Participate in local events or volunteer opportunities.  Engaging in community activities can introduce you to new people and strengthen your sense of belonging. 
  • Practice Self-Care: Remember that maintaining a healthy relationship with yourself is crucial.  Take time for activities that replenish your energy and bring you joy.

We hope you find this month’s resources and wellness events helpful in supporting you on your self-care journey.
