  • 5 Things

    you can do right now as part of your wellness routine

    Notice Nature
    Take a moment to look at the sky, the clouds, the incredible mountains…even the smallest desert wildflowers in this beautiful Valley.

    Read Before Bedtime
    Give your mind a break from overstimulation. At least one hour before bedtime, turn off your electronic devices, open a good novel and read until you’re sleepy.

    Make up a Short Children’s Story
    Reactivate your imagination and create a short tale to tell your children or grandchildren or a neighbor’s child. Gestures and raised eyebrows will add to the fun.

    Get Your Eyes Checked
    Don’t miss out on the details in life. Make an appointment to have your eyes checked. If you’re over 40, consider reading glasses, too.

    Try a New Vegetable
    Ever wonder about the orange beets in the produce section? Expand your palate and take home a new vegetable or two. You might be pleasantly surprised.
