#BellLetsTalk: Take Care of Your #MentalHealth Today and Every Day #inspiration

Do you take care of your mental health just as you take care of your dental health?

Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day and up here in Canada, it’s a day devoted to talking freely about mental health. Several celebrities from Howie Mandel to Kevin O’Leary support this event and for every tweet, Bell Media will donate 5 cents to Canadian Mental Health Initiatives.

For those of you who are long-time followers, you know both MR N and myself are big proponents of taking care of ourselves. Life is immensely busy and in order to function properly, we need a break. For us, it’s relaxing out on our Solarium, holding hands and watching the world go by (every weekend and some week days). Trains, birds and other wildlife fly by and I can’t tell you how soothing it is to sit with my feet up, not doing anything.

What do you do to relax?

Whatever it is, do it. Your mental health depends on it. Like Howie says in the quote above, if we took care of our mental health with the same dedication that we take care of our dental health, we’d all be okay.

We all have had a rough patch, where the world appears to be against us and even the simplest tasks take all of our energy. This is your body telling you your mental health is in trouble. You need to pay attention before it gets out of control.

Talk to someone you trust

Speak to a professional

Get the help you need

You’re not alone. You’re not weak if you need help. In fact, the strongest person I know is strong enough to ask for help when he needs it. 

Let’s talk mental health. What do you do to take care of yourself? Share in the comments below and together we can end the stigma.
