"It's not just eating well or exercising,
but also making healthy choices in all areas of our lives." - Jon
An important part of being able to reach our goals is feeling well both physically and mentally. Throughout our day at Clubhouse, we work to integrate wellness in all of our work.
Daily Wellness Integration
Each morning at our virtual Clubhouse we begin with a wellness activity to start our day of centered and with a good mindset. This includes usually a meditation and accessible seated stretching.
Beyond this daily wellness, we promote healthy workplace habits through our daily lunch prep. In our virtual 'Cooking Corner' we learn healthy food habits and come up with ideas for when we reopen our kitchen.
“Promoting healthy habits – encouraging members to drink water, eat fruits and vegetables, and eat well rounded meals."
Clubhouse partners with American University Public Health students, who complete their Capstone project with Capital Clubhouse. Together, Clubhouse members and AU students have created a cookbook and a wellness guide to be free resources for the Clubhouse Community. The 2023-2024 academic year will be our fourth year as partners in wellness.
