Don't be afraid to talk about your mental health!
There is no shame in seeking help. Reach out to your healthy support systems - caring friends or family. Take care of yourself by practicing daily self-care!
If the work you are doing within your loving community is not working, reach out for professional help.
Check in with yourself!
- How are you feeling today?
- What are you grateful for today?
- What are your goals today?
- What are your needs today?
- What is something you can do today that would be good for yourself?
- It is okay to have bad and unproductive days.
- You deserve love, care and support.
- Listen to your emotions and what they're trying to tell you.
- Allow yourself to feel. Don't ignore or push your feelings away!
- The good you see in others is within you too.
- Trust yourself
Mindfulness practice can help you relieve stress and anxiety.
Stop what you're doing to pause your thoughts and actions.
Take deep breaths to bring yourself fully into the present.
Observe what is going on with your body, emotions and mind. What are you feeling?
Proceed with what you were doing but now, making a conscious and intentional choice to incorporate what you've learned about yourself.
