MENTAL HEALTH MONTH & TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY
August is National Wellness Month! National Wellness Month was born out of the idea that in order to see positive results in our lives – such as build our careers, raise a family, further our education, create new ideas, and nurture our bodies — we need to take care of ourselves.
Though every month of the year is a struggle to maintain work-life balance, the month of August is a time to really drive down into what "wellness" means, both in our personal and professional lives.
This year brings new meaning to wellness month, as we all continue to grapple and find new ways of dealing with the global health crisis. If anything, being persistent is definitely a skill we get to exercise this year!
Uncertainty is on the rise, as well as financial pressures, daily alterations to our routines and new worries. Information overload, 24/7 news, anxiety and fear are additional stressors we are all dealing with on a daily basis.
During the 31 days of August, people are asked to focus on self-care, managing stress and promoting healthy routines. Research has shown self-care helps manage stress and promotes happiness. Making small changes can have big impacts on our health. This includes taking care of the body, mind and interpersonal connections.
Here are some ways to practice self-care as recommended by the Mayo Clinic:
Take care of your body.
• Get enough sleep.
• Participate in regular physical activity.
• Eat healthy.
• Avoid tobacco, alcohol and drugs.
• Limit screen time.
• Relax and recharge.
Take care of your mind.
• Reduce stress triggers.
• Keep your regular routine.
• Limit exposure to news media.
• Stay busy.
• Focus on positive thoughts.
• Use your moral compass or spiritual life for support.
• Set priorities.
Connect with others.
• Build support and strengthen relationships.
• Make connections.
• Do something for others.
• Support a family member or friend.
