This August, we celebrate National Wellness Month!

National Wellness Month is an opportunity for all of us to establish healthy habits, such as stress management and remaining present – both for ourselves and others. Establishing practices for self-care and wellbeing is essential to enhancing our quality of life, both as individuals and members of our community. Focusing on topics such as nutrition, sleep patterns, and exercise could all enhance your well-being. The benefits of self-care patterns and wellness often result from a range of simpler changes, as it takes 21 days to create a habit. It is important for you to feel comfortable with the change you create for yourself as well!

Events related to the COVID-19 pandemic of the last two years may make establishing self-care habits overwhelming or even make them feel like daunting tasks. Reframing these habits to fit your needs can help them to feel less challenging. For example, If you want to set a goal to “drink more water,” but struggle to drink water or do not like the taste, you might consider changing the goal to, “stay well hydrated.” This also might allow you more room to drink fruit juices, or some sports drinks if those appeal more to your tastebuds.

One of the best parts about working at Deep Eddy is the opportunity to find a place to belong.  This past weekend, our little community gathered for a frosty Saturday afternoon firepit party at Mueller park.  We haven’t done much in-person gathering since March of 2020, but we are excited to start back up again this year.  It was so nice to get folks together, enjoy some Rudy’s barbeque, and enjoy the beauty of Austin together.

Here are a few of our favorite pics 🙂  Enjoy!
