Wellness

Highline Wellness

It is so important to take care of ourselves during this time. When we are our best selves, we can bring our best for our students and families.  

Beginning Monday, April 20 and continuing each week through June, all Highline staff will receive an email highlighting three practices for health and wellbeing: a breathing technique, a movement exercise and a guided rest protocol.  Share what you are learning and practicing on social media using #HPSWellness.  

Every Friday in Highline Insider, our SEL Department will summarize the week’s strategies and make connections to existing SEL work.

You can also check back here anytime to see the information from previous weeks.

Wellness Strategies

Hilltop principal John Erickson reminded us, during our #HPSWellness video this week, that breathing exercises such as Breathing Ball and simple movements like Chair Cat Cow can activate our parasympathetic nervous system. This system, designed to calm the body and prevent it from overworking, stands in contrast to our sympathetic nervous system that prepares us for “fight or flight.” Find out more to help you lower your stress.
