Eagle Pride - 2024 Spring Semester 5K Challenges

Achieving a goal often requires stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing discomfort.

 

It's in those challenging moments, when you push past the urge to quit or give in to fear, that you truly discover what is possible. The process of overcoming discomfort builds resilience, determination, and confidence. Let's join together as a community, get active, and learn that we're capable of more than we may have initially believed.

 

Health and Wellness committee chair Shonda has curated a list of all of the fun runs/jogs/walks coming up in the next few months if your family is interested in participating

February American Heart Month

PTSA Health and Wellness chair Shonda shares tools to employ now to stay heart healthy. This is very relevant material to remind all of us the importance of caring for ourselves. 

 

1. Managing Stress for a Healthy Heart: Managing stress is good for your health and well-being. During stressful situations, our bodies release adrenaline (a hormone that temporarily causes our breathing and heart rate to speed up, along with increasing our blood pressure), which puts us in 'fight or flight' mode. Constant stress can damage your heart. Sitting still and taking deep breaths when we encounter a stressful situation can really help to provide relief in the moment.

 

2. Physical Activity for a Healthy Heart: When you are physically active, you not only strengthen the muscles you see, but you also strengthen your heart as well. Your heart is the ultimate muscle, pumping blood to your lungs and throughout your entire body. Regular physical activity aids in maintaining heart health and is always more fun when you have a friend by your side.

 

3. Healthy Eating for a Healthy Heart: Yes, we should all be eating our fruits and veggies, but healthy eating is so much more than that. Fueling your body with balanced nutrition, including those fruits and veggies but also whole grains and lean proteins, help to reduce your risk of heart disease and helps to maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels, all of which benefit your heart health.

 

4. Manage Stress with hugs, walks, deep breaths, support, sleep for a Healthy Heart: Stress management, care and compassion for others, physical activity, sitting still and taking deep breaths, identifying your support network, getting rest ... these are all beneficial in maintaining a healthy heart.
