Talking about mental health

Mental health is not black and white and it is not just important for parents and childcare providers, although it is an extremely important element for sure. However, it is important for all people!

So many things effect a person’s state of mental well being such as bi-polar and schizophrenia. However, what about depression, sleep deprivation, postpartum, negative self talk or just simply having a sense of not being worthy.

We are going to look at some signs of what people with different possible issues may look like, how it can affect your family if it goes untreated as well as some ways you can work on issues daily so that you strengthen and build your mental well being.

I know that I am always working on mine, sometimes daily. I know that when it is at its strongest and healthiest, I can weather all obstacles thrown at me.

Do you let stress affect your health?, do you find the low valleys are more common and harder to get out? Do you let your works and actives limit you? Then I encourage you to read these upcoming articles, really reflect on your health
Trust me when I say you are not alone, and it is nothing to be ashamed of. There comes a time when each of us need to stand up and say, “Enough” and “I deserve better.”

We talk a lot about being an advocate for your child, to be the voice that speaks up for them. Don’t you deserve the same?

This journey may be one of discomfort, but challenges and change are never comfortable.

I am going to leave you with this saying….

“”Dear life, when I said, “Could this day get any harder?” it was a rhetorical question, not a challenge.”

Are you prepared, mentally, for the next challenge life has coming your way? For we know it’s coming. How you prepare for it is up to you.
