Revitalize and Rise
Greetings, Empowered Reader!
As we find ourselves halfway through the year and heading into Employee Wellness Month, I’ve taken a moment to reflect. 🪞
Here in northern Minnesota, summer is a cherished time.
Every warm day is a precious gift and it breathes new life into our surroundings. The season calls us to connect with loved ones, shed our layers, and embrace the transformative energy it brings.
In the spirit of reflection and well-being, I invite you to ponder a few questions alongside me:
1) Where have I grown?
2) What areas would I like to cultivate growth in?
3) How do I currently feel about my overall well-being?
4) Are there specific aspects of my physical, emotional, or mental health that require attention or improvement?
5) What patterns or triggers have I noticed that impact my well-being positively or negatively?
6) Am I aligning my actions and choices with my values and goals for well-being?
By honestly exploring these questions, we can gain a deeper understanding of our well-being and identify areas where adjustments or improvements may be needed.
Now, how can EMPOWER Possible support you on this journey?
Visit the newly updated website empowerpossible.com to explore the offerings on various topics such as well-being and finding meaning. Let’s empower ourselves together.
In honor of Employee Wellness Month, I’m excited to share three powerful strategies to prioritize well-being within your organization or wherever you find yourself:
Nurture Your Self-Interest: Carve out time for activities that nourish your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Prioritize exercise, meditation, and hobbies that bring you joy. Remember, investing in yourself is not selfish but essential for overall well-being. You don’t need to start with something big. Try taking 10 minutes a day on an activity that brings you joy.
Foster a Supportive Community: Building a community of support is crucial for employee wellness. Connect with your colleagues, engage in team-building activities, and foster open communication. Together, we can create an environment where everyone feels heard, valued, and supported. How? Send an email to a colleague thanking them for help on a project or ask a colleague to join you for a walk or to lunch.
EMPOWER Possible Partnership: Explore our offerings on empowerpossible.com. Let’s embark on this wellness journey together and support each other in reaching new heights of personal and professional growth. You can download a free mindfulness meditation, sign up for a course to foster your well-being, or even schedule a free coaching call to discuss your goals for yourself or your organization.
I’m grateful to those who have already participated in EMPOWER Possible’s offerings. Here’s what a past participant had to say: “Before completing the workshops, I had no idea what an EMPOWER workshop was. However, throughout the eight weeks, I have learned so much about myself and how I can improve my empowerment in life. Thank you for everything!” – J. Ellefson
Let’s make this Employee Wellness Month a time of care, community-building, and empowerment.
Together, we can regenerate our world and foster growth and renewal.
Wishing you a season of empowerment and well-being,
Founder, EMPOWER Possible
A reflection in the mirror,
Gazing back at me,
A moment of introspection,
A chance for me to see.
The person that I am,
And the one I want to be,
A path towards self awareness,
A journey to set me free.
To see my strengths and weaknesses,
And the things that hold me back,
To recognize my inner voice,
And the courage I may lack.
To understand my feelings,
And the thoughts that fill my mind,
To let go of my fears,
And the doubts that make me blind.
For in the depths of my reflection,
Lies the key to who I am,
A chance to embrace my true self,
And become a better human.
To see the beauty in my flaws,
And the potential that lies within,To let go of my limitations,
And let my true self begin.
To find my inner peace,
And the strength to carry on,
To become the person I was meant to be,
And find my true life’s song.
So let us all take a moment,
To reflect on who we are,
To see the greatness in ourselves,
And become the brightest star.
For in the depths of our reflection,
Lies the path to self-awareness,
A journey towards personal growth,
And a world of endless fairness.
