RESILIENCE ROADMAP CONTEST - 6 WEEKS - 6 PRIZES
THIS WEEK'S PRIZE...a PIE!
The Chair of the Enliven Board, Rebecca Ellerson, shared a great resilience building tool called
Roadmap to Resilience by Dr. Donald Meichenbaum, Ph.D. The ideas are as solid now as
when the Roadmap first came out in 2012. The Roadmap is a great tool for building the
resilience we need to get through Covid, Cancer, and LIFE!
Here's the CONTEST TO WIN A WINDMILL BAKERY PIE!
For each of the next 6 weeks, we will be following the 6 areas of wellness
or 6 areas of "fitness" as Dr. Meichebaum calls them:
1. Physical Fitness (THIS WEEK)
2. Interpersonal Fitness
3. Emotional Fitness.
4. Thinking Fitness.
5. Behavioral Fitness.
6. Spiritual Fitness
So how will you take care of your physical self this week? Review the list below
and send us an email or join our Enliven Cancer Care Facebook Group and tell us with a
picture, selfie or in a sentence or two ONE thing that you've done from the list below.
We will draw from all submissions next Sunday and we'll publish the WINNER OF
A WINDMILL BAKERY PIE! ...in next week's newsletter.
(BTW - you can have a piece of pie once in a while and
still practice #4 below :)
