There are some things that my psychiatrist wrote down for me on a prescription pad for me when I was struggling with mental health as a teen. I found this note tucked in a notebook the other day and it's something that has helped me so much over the years. These are 7 things I try to remember when working on my mental health.
Seriously. A lot of the time it’s not that deep and a lot of the time it isn’t even about you!
Really though sis. You had a bad 20 minutes, not a bad day!
And sometimes change is good and sometimes it’s scary! But at the end of the day, I find comfort in knowing that things won’t be the same forever.
Connecting to what I’m passionate about makes me feel like I have a deeper sense of purpose.
Thinking about what I’m good at makes me feel empowered and inspired.
Doing more of what makes me feel empowered helps with my confidence and motivation.
Daily gratitude lists always cheer me up and I try to do them in the morning so they really set the tone for my day.
