It's time to move, move, move it! ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™‚๏ธ #MoveItMonday is here, and it's time to stretch it out! Did you guys know that stretching it out can release tension in the body, calm your mind and increase energy? When feeling overwhelmed or stressed, stretching can give us a mental break that allows you to recharge and feel refreshed. The muscles when tighten when this occurs, acting as a defensive strategy. The more you stretch, the less tense your muscles will be. Along with this, stretching can be a very effective way to manage stress because it allows for increased blood and nutrient flow throughout the body, not only leaving you refreshed, but your energy levels will also increase, resulting in an improved sense of vitality! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Take 10-15 minutes today and try out some of our favorite stretches here๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ

#WellnessWednesday is here, and we've got some tips for you!โ˜๏ธ๐Ÿ—ฃ

It's okay to feel different types of stress during these challenging times.

Some key indicators of stress can be:
โ–ซ๏ธ Fear and concern for your own safety and your loved ones' safety
โ–ซ๏ธ Sleep or eating patterns changes and difficulties
โ–ซ๏ธMental health wearing on you

Here are some ways we can combat these feelings and find clarity within the current situation we are in:
๐Ÿค Call a loved one once a day and check-in on them.
๐Ÿค Incorporate a solid routine to stay on tract and develop healthy habits at home during this time.
๐Ÿค Write yourself a letter or give yourself 5 daily affirmations of positivity about yourself and current situation.

Wellness does not always mean physical wellness! ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ช Staying connected during these challenging times can take a toll on one's mental health, especially when feeling isolated from loved ones. Take time for yourself to call a loved one or get your friends together over a group Facetime or Zoom call! ๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“žJust because we're all #physicaldistancing from each other, that does not mean we can't keep in contact with those we love in different ways!

From our PACF family, we are taking the community's health and well-being very serious during these challenging times. In an effort to bring positivity onto all of our platforms, we are implementing measures to help the community's physical, mental and emotional well-being during the shelter-in-place. In these efforts, PACF will be encouraging everyone to participate in our #MoveItMonday, #WellnessWednesday, and #ScribbleScrabbleFriday's while self-isolating during COVID-19. Join us in taking these steps to preventing the spread of this virus through actively participating in our hashtag movement. โฌ‡๏ธ

#MoveItMonday: Post a picture or take an Insta-story and tag us in how you are moving your body today! Whether its a quick home workout or a walk around your neighborhood, show us how you are keeping your body active while social distancing.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ฆ

#WellnessWednesay: Wellness goes far beyond fueling your body with good food or strengthening your immune system! Tag us in your new or current favorite meals, or show us how you are taking initiative towards bettering your mental health during these days of reflection. ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ’ญ

#ScribbleScrabbleFriday: Friday's can still be fun, even if we're stuck at home! Time to go off-line and take 20-30 minutes out of your day to free-write or 'free-draw' using the prompt we post every Friday.
