Your Wellness Resolution for 2021

2020 has been a year of struggles, like losses of loved ones to illness, losses of jobs and uncertainty about finances and how to stay safe and heathy. The issue of health includes more than physical health; mental health is important, too. 2021 can be a year that can be a do-over, a blank slate, if you will. 2021 can be the year you invest in you and especially in your mental health. Did you learn things in 2020 about yourself and your resilience that you can bring into this new year? Here are some resiliency tools that may help carry you through any rough starts in 2021.

STAY FOCUSED AND KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
Take it a day at a time. Use the skills you learned in 2020 to manage stressful times. Let go of unimportant things and stay in the moment. Remind yourself that what is important is probably right in your home: your family! Make sure to stay in touch with friends who are positive and supportive.

ENJOY SOME FRESH AIR
Just getting outside is one of the best tools to help you refocus. Take some deep breaths, enjoy a brisk walk or even a quiet moment on your front porch. Parks and botanic gardens are still open; make it a family fresh air encounter.

SLOW DOWN, IN FACT, JUST STOP!
Don’t eat at your desk while you answer the phone. Make it a real lunch break. Take a few minutes to just regroup. Hurrying through your day won’t necessarily make you more productive. Take some time to just breath and ready yourself for what you need to do. Pace yourself!

LOOK FOR HELP BEFORE YOU NEED IT
One in five of us, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will experience a mental illness in our lifetime. With this information in hand, learn about what resources are available in your community. Learn about the services, the cost and days of operation.

Hospital for Behavioral Medicine is your community hospital serving the needs of those who live with mental illness. Both children and adolescents (ages 5-17) and adults will find professional care right when they need it; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We would welcome a call so you can learn more about us, before you even need us! If you or a loved one are in need of mental health services, please call (844)- 319-0000.
