First Ever Health and Wellness Month, a Huge Success !
One of the exciting aspects of BBI is that each month represents a new reason to celebrate awareness. In May, Bright Beginnings turned its focus on family health and wellness. Spearheaded by Early Head Start Social Worker, Denise Simpson; the mission of Health and Wellness Month is to teach healthy lifestyle practices in order to get families and staff on the right track. Staff was on hand to provide support and advice regarding healthy eating and stress relief. The month kicked off with a 10 day cleanse/detox. Teachers and parents were entered automatically in a raffle to win exiting prizes, such as gift baskets, massage certificates and smoothie bottles. Community members from DC visited the center to provide workshops and presentations to parents. Thank you to DC photographer George Tolbert and Gainesville Holistic Health for their presentations on following your artistic passion, nutrition, stress management and wellness.
