Mental Health and Wellness

Many of us are struggling to keep it all together during these unprecedented times. COVID-19, protests highlighting systemic racism and police brutality, economic uncertainty, unemployment, natural disasters, political changes and the future of education (just to name a few) has left us physically, mentally and emotionally drained. 

The storm of emotions I am feeling is also raging on for many. It’s a lot to handle, and it’s having a disastrous impact on our mental health. Mental health conditions impact the entire family. We need to have strategies that allow us to experience relief and recharge so we can be a support for our loved ones. The more we take care of our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being, the better we will be able to show up for ourselves and for each other.

Take some deep breaths and ask yourself:

  1. How am I feeling?
  2. What do I need?
  3. What am I grateful for?
  4. What can I do today that makes me happy?

Self Care Tips:

  1. Keep in contact with people who bring you happiness.
  2. Journaling or writing down thoughts and feelings can be a great way to release emotions.
  3. Move your body.  Exercise releases endorphins. Make it a priority to commit 30 minutes each day for a walk.
  4. Limit your social media intake.
  5. Be gentle with yourself.

How are you going to love and care for yourself this week?

    You look so cute. Love that cozy outfit. These tips are so helpful. We all are going through so much right now. For me, I’ve been praying and journaling. It’s definitely helping, but some days are better than others. Hang in there, my friend XO
