Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, December 01

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, December 01 It’s December… already… My last challenge to you was to: Tell your friends that they matter to you. Show some kindness to a total stranger – pay that compliment, hold that door, let that person merge into traffic, tell someone you appreciate the work that they are doing… Cut yourself some slack! Its OK to be just who you are! I am happy to...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, November 23

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, November 23 It has been longer than usual since my last post.  Life’s thrown me a curve ball or two – and I am incredibly distracted.  I’m finding it super difficult to maintain any real sort of focus… I’ve lost an important person in my life… It’s going to take me some time to move through this… as it does for everyone.  I’m being careful...

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, 04 November

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, 04 November My challenge from my last post was: Take a few minutes and answer the question “How am I doing?” There’s no right or wrong answer here – just take a minute to two for self check. Explore a facet of mental health that you aren’t familiar with. Take some time, just little time, to do a bit of research. Look for three things in your experience...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, October 29

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, October 29 It’s been a bit since I posted.  I’ve been distracted. In my last post I challenged you to: Spend an hour of your time doing something for yourself. Take a nice hot bath, get a manicure, go for a walk, pet your dog, sit in stillness – just be super intentional that you are taking that hour of time for yourself, on purpose. Spend an hour of your...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, October 15

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, October 15 My life is a Mazda commercial… ZOOM ZOOM… The past 10 days have simply screamed by… I have no real notion as to what made them go by so quickly, but they have…  That’s odd really as I have had lots of stuff going on in my life – maybe the stuff kept my mind occupied and I didn’t notice the time fly by… at any rate – I’m another 10...

Mental Wellness Challenge –  2021, October 5

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, October 5 Mine is a struggle lately – that’s a truth…   I hope your journey is smooth sailing, your path is easy and bright and that your rewards many! Last week my challenge for you was: Treat others in your life the way you would want them to treat you. Give more, expect less. Tell someone you love them. Be intentional about this!   I played hermit...

Mental Wellness Challenge  –  2021, September 29

Mental Wellness Challenge 2021, September 29 It’s the end of September already… not sure where that month went… My last challenge was to: Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth… You don’t need to close your eyes or anything… just take in 5 good breaths and pay attention to the breaths you take…. Because… as simple as this sounds – you can’t retake a breath… so...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, September 13

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, September 13 I’m back, I’m still here…  To be honest – I don’t know if my taking a break from my weekly check ins with myself was a great thing to do or not… In my July 21 post I challenged you to: Live your best life. Ups and downs, ins and outs…  Soak up each and every moment with the realization that our time on this rock is limited and we...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, July 21

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, July 21 Time just screams by… Last week I challenged you to: READ THE DIRECTIONS. Take the time to communicate clearly – on both the sending end and on the receiving end. Take a breath. Don’t sweat the small stuff – and as Covey says – “It’s all small stuff.” Step back and take a look at the bigger picture. How did you do? On reading the...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, July 14

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, July 14 Last week I challenged you to: BE KIND. Be appreciative of the differences in the needs of others. We are all on different paths. Practice patience. (I REALLY HAVE TO PRACTICE at patience lately…) I hope you did OK with those pieces. Kindness is a staple in my experience.  I try to be as kind as I can – in whatever circumstances my days take me...
