Some days it can be difficult to want to get out of bed in the morning. Other days, you can easily get up and get going, then lose ambition mid-day and want to get home to somewhere safe. Some people even fear Monday mornings so much that they are restless and cannot sleep. Many people love what they do, but still find that the stress of the job has worn them down over the years.

If you struggle with any of these situations, we understand and want you to know that you are doing a great job! Sometimes it is difficult to keep going, but we always say getting up is the hardest part. Once you have done that, you can get through the rest!

Some other ideas to help with Mental Health:

  • Get some exercise in or go for a walk.
  • Talk to someone about what is going on in your life and really be honest. You are not doing yourself any favors if you do not talk about the real tough stuff.
  • Read a book or take time to work on a hobby or do something you want to do!
  • Make yourself a priority. You can’t give the most unless you are healthy. It is not being selfish, it is being responsible.
If you just don’t have time for these, additional ideas would be:

  • Listen to music that is calming and relaxing – classical music, rain, ambient sounds, etc.
  • Take 1 minute to just breathe and think about your family, goals, or someone you love. Remember that this stress or anxiety is only for a season.
We hope that if you are reading this blog you can find some relief from the stress, anxiety, and worry of life in whatever healthy way works best for you.
