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 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.

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 My challenges to you last week were to: Make time for a friend. Have a coffee, a phone call, or a walk.

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...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, July 24

Two weeks ago challenge you to: Continue kindness. Look for ways in your experience to “Pay it forward.”  That could be holding a door for someone, acknowledging someone’s efforts, picking up the tab for a coffee or lending a hand to someone in need. Mirror time. Do my mirror time each morning and night – morning when you first get up and night just before bed.  In the morning… look...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, July 10

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, July 10 Last week I challenged you to: Be intentionally kind. (I know that I have no idea what another person is going through… and I would suspect that others are in the same position of ignorance… so – I’m going to choose to be kind.) Be PRESENT! Be intentional in your life.  Think about where you are having that conversation with friends and...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2020, July 3

Mental Wellness Challenge - 2020, July 3 Utterly wild – my past week has not only screamed by – it was full of roller-coaster craziness!!! My challenge to you for the last week was to: Have a look inside your “space”. Have a peek and poke around a little… Are there “potatoes” growing behind your ears???  Are there spots that could use a little cleaning? Are there things you’ve...
