May is Mental Health Awareness month and I thought it would be a good time to pop in to remind you that your mental health matters! We all have various experiences that impact the quality of our mental health, however, it is really important for you to know about your own mental health, triggers for stress, and ways of coping that work best for you. Overall, the quality of your mental health can impact the way you think, feel, behave, and cope with life.

Here are some helpful links to learn more about general mental health information:

Here are a few ways to take care of your mental health:

  • get exercise
  • get adequate sleep (best if it’s 7-9 hours of sleep)
  • write a gratitude list
  • schedule appointments with a licensed mental health provider
  • journal your thoughts and emotions
  • pay attention to your nutrition
  • set boundaries with others
  • engage in meditation/mindfulness/prayer/contemplation

How do you take care of your mental health?

What can you do for your mental health this month?

  1. Thank you Karisse for the reminders. We found out that we have some family matters to deal with in Pennsylvania and even in the last few days I can see how it was/is already impacting my mental health. I know I have the tools to use to get through this as it may take a couple of months to work through this situation. Thankfully, I slept better last night. Slowing down and taking time outs is helpful to me in addition to everything else you suggested and what I practice.
