You are Worth it!
  • I want to get healthy but do not have time to attend events after school!

    We have the solution! Here are a few online options where you can find your perfect fit from home! 

    I'd like to try Yoga! 

    • They have many different types of Yoga - for your back pain, a good night's rest, flexibility, strength, etc. 
    • Just go to Youtube.com and type in "Yoga for ____" and try it at home!

    I think I need to Meditate

    • Just like Yoga, there are different types of meditation. 
    • Go to Youtube.com and type in "Guided Meditation" or visit "The Honest Guys" to help you with your meditation. 

    If you would like to join a gym these are the clubs that want to help you, since you help their kids!


Food
  • Why is food so important to my body, my mind, and my students?

    Food is the fuel that our body requires. Just like a car needs gas, the different foods that we put into our body can be the difference in going the distance or breaking down. If you eat the wrong thing, your body will struggle for its nutrients, storing the wrong things in the wrong places.

    If my body does not have the correct fuel, it cannot function properly. 80% of headaches come from dehydration and can also cause a lack of sleep. Grogginess, crankiness, and lack of energy are all factors of not eating right and not drinking enough water. Try to drink your bodyweight in ounces every day (i.e. 155 lbs - 155 oz).

    If you do not know where to start, here are a few links to give you an added boost! When you have tried a meal, let us know what you think below!

It is never too late to work towards the best you

stress
  • If you are feeling stressed, do not feel alone! 44% of Americans are suffering from moderate to high levels of stress. 

    The main effects of stress are fatigue and a weak immune system!

    Here are the best ways to manage your stress:

    1. Avoid Caffine - try an apple!

    2. Try more physical activity.

    3. Try Meditation.

    4. Write your To-Do list down.

    Start with something small and work your way up!

    We are here for you. You Matter to us. If you are feeling beyond stressed, please reach out to us.

     

    Suicide is not an option. If you start to feel depressed or suisidal, we would love to take time out of our day to show you just how important you are to us. And if all else fails, please call the National Suiside Prevention Lifeline at +1800-273-8255
