7 Simple Coping Strategies For World Mental Health Day
World Mental Health Day Reminds Us To Create Good Self-Care Habits To Weather Challenging Times
Creating Good Coping Strategies Are The Key To Building Resilience In Difficult Times
We are certainly being tested this year. I know 2020 will truly be the most unusual year for me an my family. But let’s talk about you. How are you doing? Are you taking good care of yourself?
It goes without saying that during incredibly challenging times, your self-care and mental well-being is top priority. It doesn’t take a lot of time to bring in good mental health habits, it just requires some forethought and a plan. In this video, I share my favorite coping strategies I use on a daily basis. When times get tough, I get laser focused on me. I know that if I’m not healthy, my family certainly won’t be healthy. As a mom, I want to lead by example.
Give yourself a break and some self-love and compassion. Give yourself permission to really take good care of yourself. Eliminate things that are pulling on your energy. Slow down and rest. You’ll get through this. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Use this time to really build a foundation for personal care, and reflect on what’s most important to you. When you get through this, the foundation of your life will have changed for the better, because you used your time wisely.
