Poetry Corner 

“Leap Year” by Annette Wynne

Little month of February,
You are small, but worthy—very!
Will you grow up like the others,
Like your sister months and brothers?
Every four years with a bound
With a leap up from the ground,
Trying to grow tall as they—
All you stretch is one small day!
Even then you’re not so tall
But just the shortest month of all.

February is Recreation Therapy Month!

Did you know? Recreation focuses on 5 domains of wellness: Social, Physical, Cognitive, Emotional, and Spiritual. Each program we run has a purpose and focuses on strengthening, maintaining or educating about these domains!

Check your calendar for programs.

Week 1 – Physical

Week 2 – Emotional

Week 3 – Social

Week 4 – Cognitive

Everyday—Spiritual, practice for 5min everyday (see below for example)

 

The most effective meditation practice is simply being present in the moment. This is a great technique for when you’re feeling overwhelmed, ad need something to calm you down on the spot

Find a comfortable place to sit

Take 3 deep breaths to ground yourself for the next moments.

Name 5 things you see—Colours, objects, or things

Name 5 things you hear—Cars passing, people laughing, your own breath,

Name 5 things you physically feel—Clothing on you, chair cushion, hair on your neck.

Do this again naming 4 things, 3, 2, and 1
