  • Its Wellness Wednesday: 

    This week's tip: Stay Hydrated!

    On hot days like we've had this week, it's good to be reminded of the benefits of staying hydrated for our physical, emotional and cognitive health!

    Good Hydration is linked to improved digestion, an even more regulated mood and  contributes to a healthy heart. Staying hydrated also helps us maintain healthy sleep, reduces headaches & gives us more energy. 
    There are MANY more benefits of hydration! Can you think of others? 

    How much water should you be drinking? According to many health experts (and my Mom), you should drink about eight 8 oz glasses of water a day (about a 1/2 gallon) 

    Why? Well, our bodies are made up of about 60% water and we loose water throughout the day. Drinking just when we are thirsty could be a sign that we are already getting dehydrated! 

    Grab your water bottle and fill it up!
  • An exciting opportunity for high school students this summer: a 2-week summer program about Identity and Diversity in downtown Springfield, offered by the UMass Philosophy Department. The program, which is called “Question Everything,” is designed as a bridge-to-college experience in which participants learn to think more critically and creatively about life’s big questions in a supportive and fun environment. It’s fully funded: all participants receive full scholarships. More information is on our website. Not School Sponsored
