SEL for Everyone

A dash of Mindfulness-based SEL for everyone!

Joy, Compassion, and Love for everyone!

When we think of February being the month of love, it doesn't have to be a single note of chocolate and message hearts, although both are nice. Spreading a little joy to someone who you know needs a boost helps not just them but us too! Sometimes, we need to give ourselves special compassion because we can be our hardest critic--especially during the toughest stretch of winter. Regardless, a little extra love all around does everybody some good.

Be well & breathe,
