Friday—Feel Well: Emotional Well-Being
Valuing emotions. Developing an ability to identify and manage emotions for health, to achieve goals, and to inform decisions. Seeking help for mental health when needed.
How to participate in Well-Being Week today?
It seems to be that “feeling well” is the culmination of all of the other aspects of well-being. When we have proper sleep, rest, nutrition, stress-reduction, alignment, enrichment, and social connection, then, ideally, we feel well.
In addition to the Balanced Living Lectures, the CBA Health & Well Being Committee has sponsored a number of mindfulness workshops in the past few years. Many of them are available on the CBA’s YouTube Channel.
You can check out the following programs on mindfulness, and taking that first breath.
