Yesterday was focused on the issues Indigenous people and mental health. I wanted to share a couple of thoughts.
Indigenous people are an important part of the life of a place because they are the connection between humans and the land. The stories they tell are important to the language and traditions of the community.
Mental health is so vital in making people well and whole. Many struggle and should never feel ashamed in asking for help. We are all better knowing our physical and mental health are linked.
We should remember both things daily and to make the world a better place for all people in body, mind and spirit.
Friends, I hope your Friday is going well. I took today off as a mental health day and I am glad to be doing some relaxing and productive stuff. I work in a small call center and it can be kinda loud sometimes so taking a 3-day weekend is helpful. I appreciate you keeping things going on the job to all who are working today.
Let’s have a good weekend ahead. Be safe, it’s kinda scary out there. Grace, peace, and love.
Bell Let’s Talk is an awareness campaign created by the Canadian telecommunications company, Bell Canada, in an effort to raise awareness and combat stigma surrounding mental illness in Canada. Although I’m not Canadian I think this is worth promoting due to the seriousness of mental health issues that are impacting humanity around the world. To my friends in Canada I encourage you to talk and listen. Be mindful. I admire you very much Canada for this effort.
I am not Canadian, but in my dreams I am. I support the talk about mental health going on today in Canada with the Bell Let’s Talk initiative. Everyone struggles. Everyone needs someone to talk to. Keep a watch out for one another. The world is a tough place these days. Peace to everyone going through stuff right now.
The question, “how are you doing?” is a very loaded one. However its one that needs to be asked. Checking in with your family and friends is a good thing to do. Be prepared for answers that you will get. Caring about the welfare of others can help you deal with your own stuff. Getting stuff out in the open is good for your mental health.
So, my friends, how are you doing? (leave your answer in the comment box below)
It’s good to step outside for a little Sun. Your mood will improve. When your skin is exposed to sunlight, it makes vitamin D from cholesterol. Sunning is sometimes about alleviating depression as much as it is about adding some color.
