May 2023 – Mental Health Awareness
Mental health includes out emotional, psychological and social well-being. It determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. It effects how we think, feel, and act, and can shift from good, to not so good, to poor. Mental Health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. We need to continuously be aware of the state of our mental health and develop coping strategies when we are overloaded with stressors. Ignoring your mental health will not improve it.
Check-In with yourself
Pause and do a pulse check with how you are doing. Ask yourself?
How am I feeling today?
What is taking up most of my headspace?
How have I been sleeping?
What did I do today that made me feel good?
Recognition and self care is crucial
Take time to rest, exercise, and engage in activities you enjoy to maintain good mental health. This can help you unwind, reboot your brain, improve concentration, and make you more productive.
Seek help when needed
Seeking support from friends, family, or mental health professional is a sign of strength.
