Today is the last day for Seniors and the last day this week. Have an amazing long weekend!

Physical Activity
Today’s yoga flow is all about focus. When we do activities that help us practice focusing, it can carry over to other parts of our life, like school! We’ll also have some fun with a Throwback disco funk dance tutorial – old school moves set to some new music! The activities today help build coordination and endurance!

KWIO yoga sequence is a “Finding Focus Flow.” Our attention follows our gaze; when the eyes wander away, so does the mind. This yoga flow shows us how to intentionally choose how to focus our mind!

Nutrition and Healthy Eating
F is for Folate
You’ve probably heard your parents say, “Don’t forget to take your vitamin!” But what exactly are vitamins, and why do we need them? Vitamins are found in foods we eat, and our bodies need them to function, grow, and develop. When it comes to vitamins, each one has a special role to play. Want to learn more about vitamins? Check out check out this VIDEO.

Folate or folic acid also known as vitamin B9 is one of 8 B vitamins. It is found in nuts, fish/meats and dairy and helps our bodies by converting our food into energy. It also helps improve blood flow, lowers blood pressure, and can improve our ability to complete physical activities.
Try one of these foods to get your daily dose of folate:

• spinach and romaine lettuce

• asparagus

• Brussel sprouts

• broccoli

• peanuts and sunflower seeds

• oranges

• whole grains

• fish
