What a great time of year even with the bugs. June can be a time where people start to feel good and start doing more. What a great opportunity to practice self-care and get in as many positive events as possible before we go into the colder months again. Just remember that self-care is a daily thing. Going conoeing and playing tennis are great summer activites. Walking and biking are also great. Enjoy the sun and the rain. 

Marching along

March brings the sunshine and more opportunities to get out and increase those endorphins. Enjoy the sun and fresh air with a brisk 20 minute walk. Go down a nature trail and bring a friend. March also brings us a bit more time. Let's enjoy the sunshine and ask a friend to go for a walk or just sit on the pouch and enjoy a beverage. Smile each morning and think about being grateful to have the ability to do another day.

Posting this about SAD, seasonal affect Disorder when the last few days have been beautiful seem kind of crazy. Saying this though, mother nature has given people who suffer with SAD a gift and it is so important to get out and enjoy the weather when possible to help manage SAD. Eating well, exercise, and doing fun things to help raise you mood will certainly help to get you through the rest of the winter season. This is all true even when we haven't been blesses with such great weather but enjoy and remember to practice self-care daily and when needed more support "We are Here to Help."

Self-Care

Posted on 7 October, 2017 at 18:55 Comments comments (0)

What is self-care and why is it important?

Self-care helps us to cope with daily stressors.

Stress is simply a reaction, either real or imagined, to situations, events or people. People may experience symptoms of anxiety, worry, and withdrawal when people are suffering from stress. We may even start taking actions to escape the stressful feelings. These might not always be positive and practicing self-care can help people get back to what works.

The most common trigger of stress is loss; the loss of, or change in a relationship, the loss of another person (Grief), or the loss of stability associated with change (job).
