Yes You MAY – Take Time for Mental WellnessMay 17, 2022
Mother May I? Yes, you MAY!!! Yes ~ you may ~ you must take care of your mental, emotional self.
So often we take the time for a physical checkup or a check in with friends and family; but we push aside our own worries, fears, and grief. When we experience a traumatic event or a series of traumatic events our physical self begins to shut down. Maybe foggy thoughts, stomach aches, sleepless nights. Some experience irritability, anger or just wanting to crawl in bed.
We face struggles and life challenges every day. How we choose to manage those struggles allows us to be a productive member in our families and within our communities. When we break an arm we go to the ER, we have regular dental checkups and even beauty shop visits.
