The American Counseling Association (ACA), the professional and educational organization representing professional counselors across diverse practice settings, held its 65th annual conference from March 16-18th in San Francisco, CA.

Wellness in your community is about connection, purpose, and accountability. So often we go about our day feeling isolated and unconnected to people in our neighborhood or city, which can have an impact on our mental and physical health. If you’re feeling isolated or not invested in your community, then it’s time to evaluate how you can make space for wellness in local spaces and organizations.
Wellness in the family is about communication, personal responsibility, and creativity. Family stress can have a huge impact on our physical, mental, and emotional health, but with the right mindset, families can feel calmer and stronger. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with family drama, then it’s time to evaluate how you can make space for wellness with your loved ones.
Wellness in a romantic relationship is about autonomy, equality, and intention. A marriage or relationship with a significant other takes energy and time that sometimes can feel difficult to find. If you’re feeling tense or exhausted around your partner, then it’s time to evaluate how you can make space for wellness in your relationship.
Wellness in our creative life is about compassion, preparation, and community. So often people talk themselves out of pursuing interests and hobbies because they’re not talented enough, don’t have the time, or feel they have no community to support them. If you are feeling a lack of focus or confidence when it comes to your passions, then it might be time to evaluate how you can make space for wellness in your creative life.
