This year’s Earth Day theme is ‘Restore Our Earth’. What does that look like to you? Is it recycling more? Planting more trees? Or is it getting involved in this weekend’s Cleaning Up Westwood event with our town’s Environmental Advisory Committee? This weekend, a few of our members will be ready to clean up alongside the @weac. We look forward to seeing you there! #earthday #volunteersrock

Everyone must still continue to wear a mask while traveling, stay 6 feet from others, wash hands often or use hand sanitizer, self-monitor for symptoms during and after travel, and self-isolate should symptoms develop.

For the month of April, the @wvac celebrates World Autism Awareness Month. Here are some ways that we try to be good supporters (and so can you!):

1. Do the research: autism is not a disease but a developmental disability that manifests itself in many ways.

2. Be mindful: be mindful that there are groups and/or individuals that spread misinformation which could be dangerous.

3. Acceptance: the spectrum is not linear but in fact very diverse. Accepting those as they are is a great step forward in showing support.

4. Speak Kindly: avoid using functioning labels when talking about autistic individuals. Many prefer to be referred as a “person with autism”. Either way, check in and ask the person how to best say it.

5. Listen: sometimes the best thing to do is listen! There are a lot of individuals who post content online and are easily accessible.

Taking care of your heart goes beyond just the physical heart itself. It’s about understanding what kinds of things that make us feel loved and fulfilled. Does it mean spending time with your family? Maybe calling your friends? Or perhaps it’s volunteering your time for a good cause. For the last post of our 7 Days of Self-Care series, we ask our followers to share some of their favorite ways that they do to take care of their hearts. Our favorite way to take care of our hearts is creating fulfilling friendships that last a lifetime not just beyond our Corp but within our community too. #inservicesaturday #volunteersrock #wearamask @jeridehaan @_joanaferreira_

Several studies have shown that dog owners have lower blood pressure — probably because their pets have a calming effect on them and because dog owners regularly use that as a form of exercise. We recommend that you grab your furry friend (or human!) and go for a pleasant walk! Pictured here is @_joanaferreira_ and her dog @_buddytaco_ enjoying a fun walk after a long day of work! #WellnessWednesday

When’s the last time you had your blood pressure checked? Was it normal? Recent studies show that mindfulness can be an effective way to reduce blood pressure (including the risk of stroke and heart attacks). One way to stay mindful is to meditate. Using free apps like Calm or Headspace can help guide you into a mindful and relaxing space. Another way to stay mindful and reducing your BP, is to go on a nice nature walk and enjoy the outdoors. Our president’s (pictured taking a blood pressure) favorite mindfulness activity is yoga. Whichever you choose, simply remind yourself to...breathe. #mindfulmonday
