Taking care of yourself doesn't need to cost anything, which is why the El Dorado County Youth Commission created a list of fun and free activities that support wellness.
Experiencing gratitude can improve your mood, lower stress, feel stronger social connection, and lower blood pressure! To practice gratitude, try thinking of what you are thankful for. You can make a list or write in a diary.
Make Time for Sleep
Many people underestimate the importance of quality sleep. Adequate sleep can improve your mood and reduce stress. If you are tired, take a nap. Try to better manage your time to get to bed earlier. Sleep is important!
Enable Do Not Disturb
Smartphone apps are designed to increase engagement. This can result in your smartphone becoming a haven for a behavioral addiction. Try to use your devices less by enabling do not disturb or a similar feature to make them less distracting.
In our efforts to encourage wellness, the El Dorado County Youth Commission has researched and compiled numerous resources related to mental and physical wellness. Explore this website to learn more.
