Make an IMPACT, Through Connection

New Year, New Project

At the end of 2022, a new year fast approaching, the Impact Team decided to plan projects for 2023. For our first project, a connection challenge! Each month will have a challenge in the form of a puzzle piece to complete and at the end of the project the participants will be able to form an entire puzzle. Each puzzle piece challenge is designed to help build resilient families by promoting positive mental and physical health. The resource includes encouragement to create a healthy routine and simple, creative ways to move your body, practice mindfulness, expand your mind, and fuel your body.

The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment, and ourselves in that moment!

Thich Nhat Hanh

Let's Connect

Research shows us that loneliness is on the rise, and that a lack of human connection can be more harmful to your health than obesity, smoking and high blood pressure.

Connecting with others is more important than you might think. Social connection can lower anxiety and depression, help us regulate our emotions, lead to higher self-esteem and empathy, and actually improve our immune systems.

Our inherent need for human connection doesn’t mean that every introvert must become a social butterfly. Having human connection can look different for each person. Try our connection puzzle project to try and step out of your comfort zone.

Get Started

Each month come back here to get your next piece of the puzzle to work on as a family!

January

It’s time to connect with yourself. For January, we encourage you to make an appointment with yourself to engage in an activity that brings you peace – whether it is creating something, listening to music, mediation or yoga, journaling or just looking up at the stars. Take at least 15 minutes at least once this month. Notice how you feel after the activity and reflect on how important it is to take time for yourself.

We're in this together.
