Mental Health Awareness Month

Hi friend,

Can you believe it’s already May 1st?

May is Mental Health Awareness month, so each week I’ll share a simple, fun tool to support living your best life. To kick off strong, here are three ideas:

If you want…

  • 2-minute exercise to boost your mood, watch this 2-minute spring time video on YouTube.
  • To create a digital vision board (so you can remind yourself who/what/why you’re working for), grab this free Canva template, digital “stickers,” and list of over 100 affirmations to easily create a beautiful vision board.
  • To actually step away from your desk, do this 5-minute, grounding, mindfulness activity:
  1. Walk outside.
  2. Take a deep breath and stretch.
  3. Name 5 things you can see, 4 things you can touch, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell, and 1 thing you can taste. (P.S. Sometimes the “taste” one is a bit tough, so here’s a tip.)

Hope you’re able to take a 5-minute break to refill YOUR cup today!

P.S. In case you missed it, I shared a workshop I’ll be attending in support of MY mental health. You can read about it here.
