Wellness Tips

Wellness is much more than being physically active. The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as "the active pursuit of activities, choices and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health". With everything that is going on in the world, we want to remind you to take care of yourself and those around you. Below is a list of tips and resources to help you stay well.


Stay Safe

  • Remember the 3 C's: One of the easiest ways to help prevent the spread of illness is to Cover, Clean and Contain.

  • Social Distancing: If you must leave your home, be sure to keep your distance from other people. The CDC is advising everyone to stay at least 6 feet away from others and to avoid large gatherings. Learn More

  • What to Do If You Are Sick: If you get sick or are caring for someone who is sick, the CDC has created guidelines to avoid further spread of the illness. Learn more

Stay Informed

Stay Active

  • Exercise at Home: The Granite YMCA has put together a wide variety of resources to help our members stay healthy and active during our temporary closure. Check out our virtual workouts page to see our collection of exercise videos - some with familiar faces!

  • Go Outside: It's okay, and highly encouraged, to go outdoors and get some fresh air. There is nothing wrong with going for a walk, run or hike as long as you follow the CDC's social distancing guidelines. Plus, absorbing vitamin D from the sun is a great way to boost your mood and immune system!

Eat Well

  • Boost Your Immmune System: There is not one food or supplement that will prevent illness or infection. It's a combination of nutrients found in the different food groups that help our immune system function naturally & efficiently!

  • Ask A Dietician: Hannaford Dietitians offer free nutrition demos and classes that cover a wide range of topics, from balancing diabetes to gluten free living – and just about everything in between. LEARN MORE

  • Meals for Manchester Youth: The YMCA of Downtown Manchester is providing grab and go meals to children in our community while Manchester schools are closed. We plan to distribute meals every weekday from 4:30 - 5:30 pm until schools reopen. LEARN MORE

  • NH Food Access Map: Our friends at UNH Extension put together an online NH Food Access Map. COVID-19 has both increased the need for food resources and created an environment in which these resources are more difficult to obtain. This interactive map is for those in need of resources, as well as those looking to support sites with donations and volunteerism.

  • Drink Water: We cannot stress the importance of drinking water! Not only does it quench your thirst, but can regulate body temperature, help your body get rid of waste and more. LEARN MORE

Stay Well

  • YWCA NH Crisis Services: YWCA NH Crisis Services provides free and confidential services to victims/survivors of domestic and sexual violence and stalking. Advocates are available via phone 24/7 or via text and web-chat 9:00 am - 4:30 pm. Reach Out

  • You Are Not Alone: During these uncertain times, many of us have new or heightened feelings of stress and anxiety. If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out. You are not alone. UNH Extension has put together a list of resources for mental health crises, substance abuse, domestic violence and more. Reach Out

  • Wellness Checks: When things are changing fast, it is important to notice when you or someone you care about is feeling "blah". Practice the NH Department of Education's Healthy Habits of Well-Being to help keep our minds and bodies healthy while helping those around us do the same.

  • Stay Connected: During our temporary closure, we are doing our best to stay connected with our members by providing helpful resources. We have created Facebook groups for all of our child care families. In the coming weeks, we will be holding live exercise classes, support groups, and more. Stay tuned!
