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...

Mental Wellness Challenge, 2021, July 05

Mental Wellness Challenge, 2021, July 05   HOT – REALLY HOT – TOO HOT…   Last week I challenged you to: Clean your windows… (figuratively or actually or both). Get a clear view of what’s outside.  Take some time to take notice of what’s on the other side of your “window”.  I’ve got a big window that is going to get cleaned the moment I am done with this post… Give...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, June 25

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, June 25 I haven’t posted in a few weeks.  I’ve been unwell – physically unwell...  Certainly, being yucky physically impacts my mental wellness… Simply – I was not feeling well enough to sit down, think my way through a post and then put it together… I’m certainly glad I am feeling better the past couple of days… its been a tough row to hoe....

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, June 04

Mental Wellness Challenge This week my challenge is: Eat a meal of something that you wouldn’t normally eat. Make an intentional decision to step outside your “ordinary”. Pick a warm day. Go outside. Take off your shoes.  Wiggle your toes in the grass.  Connect with the earth.. feel the grass on your feet, feel it tickle your toes… enjoy this really simple means of grounding yourself to...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 28

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 28 Well… I hope that last month or so was just a frame narrative or story within a story rather than the chorus to a really bad song… I certainly do not want to go through the poo that I experienced over this last little while ever again – or at least – any time real soon again… I hope my experience over the past month has had it’s climax –...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 14

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 14 Middle of May already… time is just flying by for me… seems like just yesterday I was blogging and that was a week ago… busy I suppose… Last week my challenge was to: Spin the clock back a bunch of years. Think back to a day – a long time past – that you were super happy.  Think back to the events of the day.  What was the reason you were...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 07

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, May 07 May already… This past week has been Mental Health Week.  The theme was “Name It”.  Name what you are feeling.  I often BLOG about this idea – and I hope that you were able to participate, in some way, in thinking about, talking about and sharing the need for Mental Health Awareness in your circle. Last week I challenged you to: Read something...
