Celebrated the work this group did during mental health month. TClaps to Ladybug for leading the charge on daily challenges to strengthen our minds and spirits.

US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy declared loneliness an epidemic. He suggests the following ways to fight this:
1. Connect with someone outside of your household for at least 15 minutes a day.
2. Be present when interacting with anyone (no devices, eliminate distractions)
3. Find opportunities to serve others.
4. Make space for moments of solitude to reflect and check in with yourself.

Dr. Murthy goes on to state that “even good change is hard.” As we celebrate the end of another school year, some of you may experience stress brought on by good changes. Could be a 2.0 graduating high school. Perhaps your 2.0 made it onto a new sports team for next year. Whatever it may be, if you find yourself stressed out, know that you are not alone and see the four points above. Note that most of the points above can be accomplished by continuing to show up for one another. Grateful for this group.
