    Mental health routines

    Many of us have physical health routines that we practice regularly without questions. These things include taking daily vitamins, brushing our teeth, healthy eating, and maybe even physical exercise. We do this because we know that if we don't, our physical health will decline. But how many of us practice mental health routines as well? How often do we practice gratitude, self-love, acceptance, forgiveness, peace, or stillness? If you want good mental health, please do take good care of your mind. Are there some things you do to take good care of your mind?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    Quick Tip Thursday: Be Kind To Yourself

    Try to view any fluctuations in your blood sugar levels with a curious, non-judgmental mindset, to learn what you can do better next time and to intervene if necessary, before returning to enjoying life.

    Deep breathing

    Normally when we breathe, we think we are breathing fully. But now that you are conscious of it, take in a big breath and see how much more room there is in your lungs to fill. When you practice bigger breaths, notice how this not only calms your body, but it also takes your mind off of things like anger. Does this help anyone?

    In my state, cases of respiratory illnesses have been skyrocketing! For several weeks, my mom, who’s a nurse, has been constantly talking about the shortage of pediatric and adult beds because of severe respiratory illnesses.

    Take a look at this brief guide of respiratory illnesses and what we can do to lessen the chances of getting severely ill:

    Being

    Notice how the mind loves to try to convince you that you should be doing more. No matter how far you go or how much you accomplish, it will insist there is more you need to do. Even when you are on vacation and simply resting, the mind will tell you, you are wasting your time. But life is not about getting anywhere. There is no destination or finish line. If you let your mind convince you of these things, you will constantly think you are not good enough. Can you relate to this? How do you ignore the constant pressures that your mind tries to attack you with?
