Adventist HealthCare Behavioral Health & Wellness Services encourages you to remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health. We know that life can get busy and challenging sometimes, but it’s important to take time out of your schedule to recharge and focus on your mental wellness.

Maintain your mental wellness by following the tips below:

  • Create a gratitude journal. Each week, take a few minutes to write down a few things you are grateful for. If you start to feel sad, you can look back at your journal to see all of the wonderful things you’ve been grateful for in the past .
  • Do something good. It’s as simple as it sounds. Make an effort to be kind and do some good for other people, and yourself.
  • Laugh a little. Take a moment and find something that makes you laugh. It could be watching a video or a show, or even reminiscing with friends.
  • Surround yourself with good people. Whether it’s friends or family, spend time with people that make you happy and inspire you to be a better person.
