Men's Health Month

We’re supporting the men in June with Wear Blue Sunday on June 9th, and an opportunity on June 8th to walk, bike or ride at Arabia Mountain. All of this is an effort to show our support for the men in our lives and remind and encourage men to be proactive in addressing their health and wellness.

All Wellness Ministry activities are open for all who would like to participate, and not just Wesley Chapel members.

Women's Health Month

May is Women's Health Month and we celebrated on Sunday, May 5th as Pink Ribbon Sunday.   We wore our pink and enjoyed light refreshments after service in the Narthex while receiving reliable health information on mammograms and other issues related to women's health, including information on local resources.

Northside Beltline Trial Walk

The Wesley Chapel Wellness Ministry walked on Saturday, April 27th at 11am along the Atlanta Beltline.  Friends and family enjoyed a beautiful spring day.


Seed Swaping Was Fun!

They came, they shared, they laughed, they learned, they grew, and they enjoyed.

The Seed Swap was a fun occasion by all who attended.  There were many seeds to choose from flowers, vegetables, fruits, organic, and even some fresh farm raised eggs.

Thank you to Nicole and Angela for bringing together members and our community to enjoy a morning of growth (knowledge, seeds and plants).

Mindful March

This month is Mindful March, which invites people all around the world to explore and practice mindfulness. Take ten minutes out of each day to practice a mindfulness activity (whether it be an activity of daily living, walking, commuting, at your office, or a formal guided meditation) throughout the entire month of March.  Once you have practiced mindfulness for these 30 days, we hope you’ll see the improvements in your mind and body and will continue throughout the rest of the year and many years to come!  The Wellness Ministry invites you to participate in March Mindfulness by choosing some of the following activities, or others of your choosing:

Set aside time to read for pleasure

Get absorbed in a creative activity

Listen to your favorite song

Have a no plans day

Use kind words when you speak to yourself

Mindfulness is the state of being attentive to and aware of what is taking place in the present. It is intentional (consciously doing) and accepting (rather than judging). When we’re mindful we become more aware of our thoughts and feelings and are better able to manage them. It involves staying in the moment, spending more time noticing what’s going on both inside ourselves and in our surroundings.

Learning to be more mindful and aware does wonders for our well-being. Mindfulness helps us get in tune with our feelings and stops us from dwelling in the past or worrying about the future, getting more out of the day-to-day.

Mindfulness Exercise

At least once a day, stop and take 10 minutes to just breathe and be in the moment. Being engaged in the present moment can lead to a richer life experience. Notice and appreciate the things around you. Smell the coffee, feel the breeze or warm sun on your face, hear the birds sing. Laugh.



Indulge in Self Care

We urge everyone to indulge in self-care.   Here are some suggestions:

Listen to calming music, buy yourself flowers, pray and meditate, go for a walk, stretch, dance, drink green tea. 

You get the idea.  Go for it!
