8 Tips to Care for Your Mind & Soul

Updated: Jul 28, 2021

I think everyone can agree that it's a scary time to be a parent.  I know every time "breaking news" comes on the radio, I feel a twist in my stomach.  I told my husband the other day that, I never thought I would need to parent through times such as these.

I've been spending much time talking to friends, family, colleagues, and co-workers about everything.  And as I discussed these important topics with them, I noticed there was a need that they weren't addressing, and I wasn't addressing for myself either:  Mental health hygiene.

Just like your teeth need to be cleaned daily, your hands should be washed frequently, and your hair needs a good scrubbing in order for you to stay healthy, your mind needs good hygiene too.

Your mind is a powerful thing, but it needs to be taken care of just like every other part of your body, or it will begin to fall apart.  And if your mind falls apart, everything else starts to fall apart with it.  So today, I'm going to give you some quick tips for good mental health hygiene so that you can keep marching forward on whatever battle your currently fighting.
