With March comes greener things (Happy St. Patrick’s Day!) and signs that spring might be approaching. The hormone serotonin is like the spring for our mind and body…it brings feelings of happiness and well-being and can help stabilize our mood. So how do we boost serotonin levels in our body? Here are some tips:
-Get out and get some sunshine (along with it comes Vitamin D).
-Reduce your sugar intake.
-Increase your intake of salmon, nuts, seed, eggs, spinach, soy products and poultry.
-Be pro-active in your positive thinking.
-Increase your physical exercise.
-Try meditation and massage.
Mrs. Carr is our amazing art teacher. She grew up close by in Cottonwood Heights. She attended Ridgecrest Elementary. She loves to travel with her family. Hawaii is one of her favorite vacation spots. Exploring the island and sitting on the beach is the best. She misses pintrading and hanging out at Disneyland. Besides one of the funniest comedians Jim Gaffigan making her laugh, her husband makes her laugh daily. Mrs. Carr’s life motto is to try to be kinder than is necessary. She likes the quote from Cinderella, “Have courage and be kind.” What you might not know about her is that she loves to play games. She plays games almost every day including some of her favorites: Ticket to Ride, Camel Up and Phase 10.
Mrs. Anderson or as the students call her Coach Sara is our Playworks teacher. She grew up in Bellevue Washington. She attended Newport Heights Elementary School. Her favorite place to go on vacation is to the ocean because it’s so beautiful and restorative meaning that it makes her feel good inside. She loves spending time with her family or relaxing and reading a good book. Her greatest accomplishment besides her 5 great kids is building a community playground. And guess what? She doesn’t like dark chocolate. So sad for her.
