Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 27

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 27 7 more days have raced by for me… the older I get, the faster they go… most of the time… Last week I challenged you to: Make time for someone.  Make some time to listen to someone share about their day or their current experience.  Practice acceptance and understanding. Laugh out loud.  Listen to a humorous story, tell one... but laugh out...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 20

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, November 20 7 more days fly by… like the saying goes – “Time waits for no-one.” Last week my challenges for you were to: Tell yourself you are special, unique and loveable. Do this each day – maybe morning and night.. perhaps even put this into my ‘mirror exercise’. Tell someone you work with, live with or that is in your experience, that they are...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, November 13 Another week has passed… zooooommmm… Last week I challenged you to: Drink water. At least 4 large glasses a day. Go to bed 30 minutes earlier than you normally do each day – give your body those 30 extra minutes to recharge. Draw a picture of something. Spend 15 minutes – and draw a picture.  Connect with your mind. On drinking lots of...

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, November 06 Hi Blog.  It’s been a couple of weeks since I last wrote here… Life has been hectic, I haven’t been feeling very well and time has simply run through my fingers.  That’s the way it has been… I’m still not feeling very well – I am still having “body issues” and those are really starting to wear on my mental health… as are the...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 23

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 23 Hi again.  My challenge last week was to: Lift someone up. Give praise to someone who is doing their best. Just listen.  Listen to the quiet.  Listen to someone’s story.  Listen to your heart. Tell three people in your life that you love them. You can use words or act… but let them know you love them. I was able to recognize and acknowledge...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 16

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, October 16 Last week I challenged you to: Find one thing each day to be grateful for, write that down on a sticky or a note and put it in a place like your fridge or bathroom mirror where you will see it and them through the week. Share your gratitude with someone in your life. Practice kindness. How did you do? I did OK… but I didn’t follow the exact...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 09

Mental wellness challenge – 2020, October 9 Another Friday comes… another week is behind me…  My challenge to you last week was to be intentionally tolerant, to use “please” and “thank you” and to find a reason – every day – to smile.  How did you do? I was reasonably successful with my challenge.  I exercised tolerance as best I could – even at times when I was… well –...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 02

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, October 02 My challenges to you last week were to: Make time for a friend. Have a coffee, a phone call, or a walk. Take a little time to really see nature – each day for the next week. Practice patience. How did you do? I took time, made time, to spend time with a good friend.  It didn’t matter what we would talk about, or how the visit would go – I just...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, September 25

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, September 25, 2020   Last week my challenge was to: Talk to someone you love about mental health. It might be an uncomfortable conversation at the start – but take time to talk about some facet of mental wellness. Hug someone in your “personal bubble”. Wear a mask if you need to, but get some connection time with someone you care about.  We are...
