Question: What would your ideal “mental health day” look like?

Answer: I don’t know if it would look much different than what I’m already doing, since I engage in a lot of the practices that increases the positive benefits of mental health. Exercise, meditation, slow breathing, purposeful work, close relationships with family and friends, and nature walks – I’ve been very adamant about incorporating all of these self-care practices in my day. (As a side note, I think it’s ironic that our School of Health and Human Sciences IS NOT advocating to incorporate self-care practices within and outside the classroom to address mental health issues – shame on them.)

So, how many have you included in your life? If none or very few, maybe it’s time to try a few new things now so that they become new, ingrained habits in 2022!
