January’s always a time for reflection and soul searching—fresh starts and all that. As you wellness champions know, wellness is multifaceted and taking care of yourself ensures that you are in the right space to help encourage others to do the same.
If you haven’t had a chance to read the latest blog by Jocelyn Plakas-Lock on reflection, take peek! It’ll help you hone in on the wonderful projects you worked on, give thanks to your colleagues who helped and provide the space needed to make your initiatives sparkle in 2017.
If you’re in need of some inspiration to direct your energy for 2017, take a read through this cool blog, brought to you by Stéphanie Caron-Roy, on the Eight Dimensions of Wellness. The visual representation from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration demonstrates how broad wellness really is.
We love Stéphanie’s thoughts on the ripple effect wellness initiatives have and the potential for far-reaching benefits that you may not even realize. It’s possible that one small change you make in the workplace, or at home, can show up in other aspects of your life. And who knows, you may even influence your colleagues to try something they weren’t comfortable with because of your example and leadership.
Here’s to new beginnings and fine-tuning what we can in the year ahead!
