• Mindful May Tip: Take a walk or bike around the block, do some yoga, take the stairs instead of the elevator—every step counts! Physical health is an important part of being mindful. Researchers have found that exercise impacts one’s rate of breathing, heart rate, and temperature, making you more aware of your body. This physical awareness leads to increased mindfulness.
In summary—moving your body will help you to improve focus, reduce stress, and regulate emotions, so get outside and enjoy the spring weather this week! Have a great day!
• Inspiration Nation. Raye Montague, the groundbreaking engineer, and ship designer, smashed both gender and racial barriers to revolutionize Naval ship design and become the U.S. Navy's first female program manager of ships. While Montague was the first person to ever design a ship on a computer, her contributions were little known.” “Montague was born on January 21, 1935 in Arkansas, and the gifted girl, who excelled at math and science, set her sights on her future career early: when her grandfather took the 7-year-old Montague to see a captured German submarine during WWII, she was fascinated by how it worked.” Click on the QR code to read more about Raye Montague.
