Join Us for National Wellness Week and #ShareWellness!

September 17, 2014 Uncategorized 0

What do you do to enhance your wellness? Take a walk? Practice yoga or meditation? Drink a veggie or fruit smoothie? Read? Garden? Connect with a friend? Get a massage? Sleep more? Swim? Share what you do!

For National Wellness Week, September 15–21, 2014, share on social media with SAMHSA and your friends and followers some of your favorite wellness-enhancing activities. What do you do to improve your physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, financial, occupational, and/or environmental wellness dimensions?

We know that wellness—the presence of purpose in life, active involvement in satisfying work and play, a healthy body and living environment, joyful relationships, and happiness—is integral to our behavioral health.  However, too many Americans who experience mental and/or substance use disorders are in poor health, mostly due to preventable medical conditions.  Practicing wellness has become an essential part of good behavioral health.

Post a message, photo, and/or video on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Vine showing your favorite wellness activities and include the#ShareWellness hashtag in your post. You could take a photo of yourself with a sign featuring your favorite wellness activity or even record yourself enjoying a wellness activity.

Follow the #ShareWellness conversation on social media to learn more about wellness activities that could enhance your overall health and well-being.

Let’s have fun sharing wellness messages with friends, family, and followers! Don’t forget to include the #ShareWellness hashtag in your posts.
