National Women’s Month – Let’s Talk Health
While the world and our communities are combating COVID, it’s important to remember the guidelines to keep safe. As we strive to get back to doing the things we love, such as socializing and outdoor activities, always be aware of our surroundings as well as other options to optimize your life.
Mental Health Mondays
Did you know that good mental health isn’t necessarily being happy or upbeat all the time? Women can experience various emotions for many reasons in healthy ways. Having good and strategic habits to improve your mental health can help your mind to perform at its optimum peak!
Consider being intentional in doing these things such as:
- Adapting readily to change. Accept what you cannot do about these changes and do what you can to alleviate anxiety over the changes.
- Learning new information.
- Being productive and contributing to your work, social outlets, churches, community, family, organizations, or where ever you express yourself and offer value.
- Building strong relationships.
- Learn how to experience your emotions in healthy ways.
Be adventurous in trying new activities. Be sure to be safe and ease into things you may feel uncomfortable by observing others’ participation.

Helpful Tips Tuesdays
Did you know that when you don’t get enough sleep it can make you more emotionally reactive? According to scientist and researchers, not getting enough sleep could cause you emotional responses to be more impulsive and intense. So, before mowing over others with snappy words and attitudes or losing your cool with your family or pets, take a deep breath, count backward from ten letting the air out slowing in your counting, and be intentional about getting a good night of sleep, every night. And if you did lose your composure a heartfelt apology will go a long way.
