Men's Health Month

June is Men's Health Month! This month is about encouraging the men in your life to take care of their bodies by eating properly, exercising regularly, and working to prevent disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, men in the United States, on average, die 5 years earlier than women and die at higher rates from the three leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer and unintentional injuries. It is encouraged during this month that men take control of their health, and for families to teach young boys healthy habits throughout childhood.

Wear Blue Day is on Friday, June 17.

Mental Health

How to Practice Gratitude

Practicing gratitude can be a game-changer: it has far reaching effects, from improving our mental health to boosting our relationships with others. Living your life with gratitude helps you notice the little wins. Each small moment strings together to create a web of well-being that, over time, strengthens your ability to notice the good.

Building your capacity for gratitude isn’t difficult. It just takes practice. The more you can bring your attention to that which you feel grateful for, the more you’ll notice to feel grateful for!

Check out tips and information on how to practice gratitude, daily practices, start a journal, train your brain, and the science of gratitude.
