WHAT'S ESSENTIAL?

FROM THE MIND OF A MENTAL HEALTH EXPERT

COVID-19 ushered in a global INTERVENTION. It’s requiring us to retreat to our own homes and to focus on the basics of our existence both individually and collectively. With that being said, the rush to return to “normal” is troubling. Here’s the question, “How fragile is your core existence if you are this uncomfortable in the place you call home, with the people you call family?” Are we willing to risk lasting connections for momentary ones? There are many lessons to be learned in this moment and with this rush we are at risk of missing them all. Even TikTok has bombarded us with #dontrush! The new challenge is to not lose the quality acquired in quarantine (#qualityquarantine). As you prepare to emerge from home, learn the lessons that will help you become mentally healthy while in quarantine and beyond! The theme of the lessons is R.E.S.T. Pre-COVID, life was moving too fast for you to truly live it, for you to genuinely live you. To live life to the fullest, we must take time to R.E.S.T. Visit here each Monday in May, Mental Health Awareness Month, for valuable information on the true benefits of R.E.S.T. (#dontrushrest)

MENTAL HEALTH

OUT LOUD

CONVERSATION STARTERS

Facts: Mental Illness and Mental Health are not one in the same. Mental illness is a condition and mental health is state of being. Consider this.

Mental illness is a disorder/disease that effects thinking, mood, and behavior. Mental health is a person’s condition regarding psychological (mental) and emotional well-being. Mental illness is what many think of when mental health is mentioned. They shy away from addressing mental health because they don’t see their issues as evidence of a disorder nor do they want them to be evidence of such!

 

However, there are struggles and strategies relative to mental health short of illness just as there are for physical health. Instead of avoiding mental health, I welcome you to strive to manage your mental health. Everyone wants to be a boss, right?. Let’s start with being your own boss. You are, therefore, officially an entrepreneur! Are you prepared to run your business?
