October Updates

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is October 10, 2022. This is a global opportunity to acknowledge mental health. Since it is on 10/10, we wanted to offer 10 evidence based things you could do to take care of your own mental health.

1. Call/text/e-mail a friend just to say hello
2. Take a walk in nature
3. Pet a dog or a cat (or any pet of your choosing)
4. Change your temperature -- take a warm bath or a cold shower; drink some warm tea or an ice cold soda
5. Use all your senses. What do you smell, taste, hear, feel and see?
6. Write in a journal. Need some ideas, our downloadable resources have journal prompts.
7. Exercise
8. Practice Gratitude. Simply acknowledging something you appreciate is enough
9. Laugh
10. Dance

We know these are simple strategies that may only bring a few moments of relief. If you need more ideas or want to talk about your mental health, give us a call or text at 303-724-2500.
