Take a Break and Appreciate National Mental Health Month
By Alive & Well Corp Staff
This month provides us with an opportunity to slow down and recognize the individuals who are surviving day to day with ongoing mental health issues. It is not easy living with a mental health disorder and soceity is not exactly rolling out the welcome mat. Here are some ways you can help celebrate the day.
- Choose a Mental Health organization to donate your time or money to.
- Give a hug to someone you know with a mental disorder and tell them that you are not in their shoes but you are here to support them as much as possible.
- Write a personal note or card of encouragement to an individual suffering with mental health issues.
- Share a message about celebrating the day on social media.
We at Alive & Well will be providing resources this month to aid in any way possible to individuals struggling with mental health issues and are in need of support.
After careful thought and consideration about the connection between our inner selves and our bodies, I have come to the conclusion that in order for us to be at our best, we must first consider the way we think about ourselves. If we view ourselves as a failure then that trickles down to our bodies and our minds become a sewer for these thoughts. Here are some ways you can avoid getting into this type of mentality.
We often give gifts to people we care about and give little thought to ourselves but its important to pamper ourselves and to feel special about who we are. Giving your body a massage can help you feel better about yourself and help you get that extra pep in your step. Getting a mssage not only helps to relax the body, but also the mind. Here are some ways in which you can indulge yourself and experience a place where you won't want to come back from.
When you begin to look at all the work it takes for us to function at our best on a daily basis its truly insane. We are not only responsible for ourselves but also for hundreds of other tasks. No wonder we are overwhelmed and looking for ways to escape from it all. Finding healthy ways to get away is not hard but it requires dedication. Here are some methods you can use to help cope effectively with the day to day.
