May is Mental Health Awareness Month and now more than ever our mental well-being is being challenged. Having to manage between working, not working, homeschooling our children and taking care of loved ones can be overwhelming. As the weeks go by, we are experiencing so many changes that have directly affected our daily lives. Most of the plans we have made are on hold or have become virtual. These include family reunions, graduations, a scheduled visit with our therapist and social engagements.
As we work through this pandemic, let us not forget to also take care of ourselves. Our emotions need to be expressed and dealt with. If you have experienced or are experiencing a mental health crisis, do not hesitate to reach out. Also it is important to look for ways to help you cope with current stressors such as taking a walk, listening to music, taking a longer bath or even taking a little power nap can be helpful. Taking care of your mental health is important.
We are together in this!
