Today is one of those days that people brush off because they think, ‘ I’m good. I’m fun. I’m doing great. Why do I need to stop and reflect? I’m in a great time in my life! ’ Mental Health Day isn’t about judging how good you are — it’s about taking a moment to pause. Here are a few ideas that I use in my life and what I practice with my children:
1. Be curious not furious.
2. Before reacting – take a second and then answer the question asked. Just because someone is getting upset- doesn’t mean you need to.
3. Acknowledge the difference between venting vs complaining
4. I do headstand every morning and tell myself what I’m grateful for: my family, friends, people I work with, my ability to provide for my family.
5. Start your morning with a bowl of fruit and a glass of hot water and lemon. Start your day clean.
I’m always in need of improvement — so please give me insight into what you do to maintain balance!
I wish you all a great day that reminds you of how incredible you really are.
HAPPY MENTAL HEALTH DAY.
