Make time for your mental health
Individuals who deal with one or the other, and sometimes both, deserve recognition and support as they learn to live their lives with these issues. This month, we wanted to take a moment to recognize the very difficult work our clients do to maintain and succeed in all facets of their lives. We see the work that it takes to live a happier and more fulfilled life, and we are always inspired by our client’s resilience!!
5 Ways to Celebrate Mental Health Month
• Are you ok?
• Do you need to talk?
• What can I do to be there for you?
• Is there anything that you need from me?
• Get enough sleep every night
• Eat nutrient-rich foods
• Cut down on processed foods, sugars and alcohol
• Exercise regularly
• Practice mindfulness
• Take time for yourself
• Do activities that you enjoy
• Set boundaries with others
• Take a break
• find a therapist that you work well with
Helping others can help you when you’re feeling down, too! Get your friends and family involved to get social. St. Jude’s House is a great starting point, find more information by clicking the button below!
Sharing information about mental wellness is a fantastic way to spread awareness. You could hand out fliers at fundraisers or schools. Find out if local organizations need help spreading the word about what they do. Many people raise awareness about mental health issues using social media. A social media post is all it takes!
Sharing your story shows others that it’s possible to manage a mental health condition. It also encourages others to talk openly about their battles. The more awareness that we can raise during this month, the more we can influence our society to make mental health a priority.
