June's Challenge from Planting the Seeds
Project Green Schools is honored to have our PGS Advisory Board Member, Jill Sylvester a licensed mental health counselor and author, providing monthly strategies and tips for our mental health.

For end of June graduates:

Summer is a time of growth and reflection.
How do you want to emerge after this time is complete?

It helps to take inventory.
Who are you now, at the start?
Who do you want to be?
What does the bridge look like to get there? What might be the steps you need to take today to begin moving in that direction?

Grab a journal and record your thoughts, your strategies, your ideas, your successes.
Choose to program your inner navigation system this summer in order to reach your destination.

For more tips and techniques on how to feel healthier on all levels, please visit or listen to our Trust Your Intuition podcast on Apple, Spotify and other channels.
