May is Mental Health Awareness Month but our emotional well-being is something we need to address year-round. Check out this vid of my appearance on Channel 7 News DC and read below for ways to improve your emotional well-being!
These last few years, in particular, have taken a toll on many people’s mental health, so now more than ever, you need to engage in all facets of self-care.
This is why I’m sharing this helpful Emotional Wellness Checklist with 6 tips from the National Institutes of Health that you can download and use! I recommend you download the checklist and see how you are doing with your emotional well-being.
It addresses 6 actions you can take to improve your mental health:
- Brighten Your Outlook
- Reduce Stress
- Get Quality Sleep
- Be Mindful
- Cope With Loss
- Strengthen Social Connections
Pro-Tip: Be of Service!
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Volunteering reduces stress and increases positive, relaxed feelings by releasing dopamine.” But you don’t even have to have an actual volunteer position to get these benefits. Just helping out a friend, family member or doing a good deed for a stranger can lead to you feeling good about yourself and the world. It also helps you to focus less on your problems by getting you outside yourself. If you don’t already do this, give it a try and let me know how you feel.
