Today, October 10th is National World Mental Health Day. If you do nothing else for yourself today, please take time to read this article. 


Here are a few tips and strategies for our mental health.


Take one and incorporate it in your life today, right now!

 

  1. Laugh: It has been proven to make us feel better, even if it is forced. Look in the mirror and laugh now.

 

  1. Meditate: One minute makes a difference. Stop and sit quietly for one minute now.

 

  1. Breaks: Take small or big work breaks. See above. If you don’t want to meditate, step outside and take deep breathe, now. Schedule time off for a vacation.

 

  1. Fitness/ health: It doesn't have to be a marathon or an all out workout. Take a short walk, use the stairs. Do three squats or jumping jacks, now.

 

  1. Gratefulness: Write down 2-5 things you are grateful for. Yep, now.

 

  1. Self Care: Do something for yourself now. Scheduled a massage, schedule a day off work to do nothing, or look in the mirror and say “I am wonderful”. Now!

 

  1. Be present: Focus on one thing at a time. Stop multitasking, now.

 

  1. Comparing: You are unique. We don't want you to be anyone else. Stay off social media just for today.

 

  1. Love yourself: Give yourself a hug. Now.

 

  1. Smile at someone. Now!

 

This list is meant for our overall mental health and are tips that I personally use. It is not meant to be medical advice in anyway.


If you are experiencing depression of having serious mental health concerns, please reach out to a mental health expert.
