How do you INtegrate?
Two teachers at Harrison High School want to share the success they have experienced with INtegrate and want to encourage others to pursue wellness. Kent Kiester and Nick Jackson have lost a combined 89 pounds in 16 weeks. While Nick and Kent talked about wanting to lose weight near the end of the first semester, Nick initiated their plan at the beginning of the second semester and says they didn't do Keto, Atkins or any other "named" diets. He attributes their success to simply eating healthy, monitoring calories, using the MyFitnessPal app, and having a partner for encouragement and accountability. And it has worked!

Mindfulness Matters
Incorporating mental self-care into your day can have a powerful impact on your health and ability to manage life with resilience. Try these simple steps to well-being:

Stop : Make a point of stepping out of the momentum of your day. Put down your phone and get quiet, allowing your attention to turn inward. 
Mindfulness Matters
Breathe : Your breath is a great barometer of how you’re feeling. When you’re upset or stressed, the breath tends to be fast and shallow. Take moments throughout the day to notice your breathing and recognize if you’re feeling stressed. Shift into taking calm, deep breaths to release tension and activate the body’s relaxation response.

Think : You have the power to change how you are feeling by changing your focus. Our minds are powerful, and our body’s reaction to something we are actually experiencing vs. just imagining is the same.

New Gmail feature - Schedule to emails to send
A new Gmail feature has just been released that allows users to schedule their emails to be sent at a future date and time. Previously, a third-party extension (Boomerang) has been required to accomplish this. Now, the functionality is available natively in Gmail on the web and the Gmail App for iOS and Android. To learn more about this feature and how it can be used, please review this Help Center post .

Please note: If you are a Boomerang user, this extension must be uninstalled from Chrome in order to access the new Gmail feature. Also, this feature is not available in the default "Mail" App for iOS; the Gmail App must be utilized.
with Kathy Nimmer

Here we are in May! Are you tired? Thankfully, we don't live this life
in isolation. We can often do what seems impossible, even in the home
stretch, because of the team surrounding us. If you need a reminder of
that team or perhaps just a smile, check out this video where
something solo is converted to something communal, and everyone is
better because of it!
