Giving Thanks! Having an attitude of gratitude.
Thank you for being such a great staff and pouring so much of yourselves into your work. You all make Westonka a great place to work!
We want to give a huge shout-out to Janice Bradburn, Paraprofessional at MWHS, as the WINNER of the October Wellness Trivia. Janice is the winner of a FREE 30-day membership at the Westonka Activities Center. Thank you, Janice and everyone who participated in the Trivia. For those of you who missed out, no stress - you can participate in the November Trivia. If you were curious about the marathon trivia question, the answer was 82 total marathons were run by the selected Westonka staff.
As we enter the Holiday season, the days can get busier, the weather gets colder, and the sunlight sometimes seems as though it doesn’t want to come out. We want to encourage you to continue to take care of yourself. Make time, even if it is just a little bit each day, to invest in yourself.
As a staff, we want to be our best for those we serve but sometimes our cup is not full. Fill your cup up with gratitude and things that energize you. Surround yourself with others that fill up your cup.
As you browse through the Westonka Wellness website you will find tips to help you keep your wellness a priority.
