Mental Health action day



Hey everyone! It’s been a while, at least in internet time.

 

I know I am supposed to keep up with blog posts, but life has been lifing, it is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have been doing just that: focusing on my mental health.

 

If you have read my book (I won’t shame you, but you can purchase a copy here if you haven’t already ;-) ), you know that therapy has been an integral part of my life since middle school. I recently spoke about my mental health and infertility experience and stressed the importance of people knowing their bodies and when things are “off.”

 

During that discussion, I referenced when women feel certain things within their bodies like fibroids, high blood pressure, and other more prominent symptoms; however, the same can be said about your mental well-being. It may take a while to notice when you are not feeling like yourself, but the moment you get wind of it, it is IMPERATIVE to take action.



Do you have a trusted friend you can confide in? Call them! Do you have a healthy coping mechanism, like exercise, an adult coloring book, or music? Utilize it! If you’re like me and need to talk to someone you can trust, schedule an appointment with your therapist. If you do not have a therapist, check with your employer’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP), as therapists may be included in this service, and the company may offer a certain number of free sessions to get you back on track.

 

The American Psychological Association refers to our nation as “recovering from collective trauma.” We all must navigate this “thing” the best way we know how, which will differ from person to person. Below are a few social pages I follow for inspiration and mindfulness content. You may not need to utilize them, but they could be helpful to someone you know.
