Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, March 03

Mental Wellness Challenge 2022, March 03 I don’t know about anyone else – but I’m feeling an incredible level of stress.  The world just seems like such a nutzo place right now…  so – ya, I don’t feel good. Last week my challenge was to: Stretch your body. Get up, touch the sky – get up on your toes and really reach for the sky.  Bend over, touch your toes.  Put your arms out to...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, February 22

Mental Wellness Challenge  2022, February 22 It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post.  I’ve been pre-occupied with “STUFF”… and very simply did not feel much like blogging. In my last post I challenged you to: Watch a sunrise. Draw a geometric shape that represents how you feel. Then color it – give the emotions you are feeling right then – some colour.  There’s no right...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, February 10

Mental Wellness Challenge  2022, February 10 Hello Blog Longer days, warmer weather – not terrible!!! Last week my challenge was to: Blow off some steam – unload some stress. Take some exercise.  Write a little.  Watch a funny movie and laugh – laugh belly laughs…. Or maybe sit quietly and let your stress flow away from you. Lend someone a hand. Hold the door some someone at the store,...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, Feb 02

Mental Wellness Challenge 2022, February 02 February already… My last challenge was: Take a piece of paper and pen, write down 10 things, in your experience, that you are grateful for… maybe it’s the food you have to eat, the clothes you have to wear, the cup of warm coffee or clean water that you have to drink, the friend sitting in the chair beside you… just write down 10. Then I want...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, January 27

Mental Wellness Challenge  2022, January 27 Hello Blog – another week has slipped through the hourglass of my life.  Some good grains – some meh grains – some not so good grains…  all that – and I’m still here… Last time I wrote, my challenge was to: Take 5 minutes to stop.  Be still for 5 minutes.  Use a clock if you have to.  In those 5 minutes don’t answer the phone, read...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2022, January 18

Mental Wellness Challenge  2022, January 18 My last challenge was: Think about being kind. Are we, as social creatures, fundamentally skeptical, guarded, perhaps self serving or are we fundamentally kind, caring and community minded?  Someone encouraged me to consider and think about this… so I am sharing the same encouragement.  Think about it a bit – I know I can certainly see places in...

Mental Wellness Challenge  –  2022, January 10

Mental Wellness Challenge  2022, January 10 Happy New Year to you.  It’s been about four weeks since my last post.  Time flies for sure – but I’ve been heavy and struggling lately and to be honest – haven’t felt much like sharing. In my last post I challenged you to: Keep in mind that we don’t know another’s path – we simply can’t. Even if we’re travelling on the same road,...

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, December 09

Mental Wellness Challenge – 2021, December 09 Last week I challenged you to: Wash your face. While your washing your face, imagine that you are washing away any troubling thoughts or feelings.  Lovingly pat your face dry… when you take the towel down, look in the mirror and tell yourself “You Got This”… because you do! Go for a little walk all by yourself. Talk to yourself if you like,...

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...
