It is so important for you to rise up and meet this challenge!

These messages will be coming to you throughout the rest of the school year and will address all levels of interest and ability. Feel free to communicate with WMA faculty and coaches if you have questions or ideas.

Mindfulness & Exercise

From Ms. Presnal, School Counselor

"We know that mindfulness is an important tool to maintain mental health, but it can be a challenge to find time in the day to incorporate it. Mindfulness while running is possible and it gives exercise an even greater purpose. Being more mindful may seem difficult at first, but I recommend starting by going for a run outdoors and leave your headphones at home. Start slow, focus on your breathing and assess how you're feeling. 

How do your arms feel?

Your legs? 

How's your breathing? 

Pay attention to any areas of tightness, etc. Just make yourself aware of how you're feeling, without doing anything to change how you're feeling. 

You can do this for the first 5-10 minutes of your run or you can carry it throughout the run and shift your focus to your surroundings, feelings and observations. This helps you become more self-aware while you're exercising and it may even make your run go by a little bit faster!
