Hey there, my fellow warriors in the battle for work-life balance and mental wellness! 🌟
Let’s get real for a moment – taking care of your mental health is hands down the most important thing you can do for yourself. It’s your superpower, your ticket to happiness, and your daily lifeline.
Today I am breaking down three must-haves for your mental health toolkit to ensure you’re not just surviving but thriving:
Have you ever heard of the Breeze App? For just $37.99 yearly, it’s like having a personal emotion guru in your pocket!!! This nifty tool helps you get in touch with your feelings, identify triggers, and track your mood swings. It’s one of my favourite tools ever! 🙂 It’s your secret weapon to forming healthier habits and challenging those pesky negative thoughts. A happier you is just a download away! 🌈 Seriously, you won’t regret it!
Next up, say hello to The Five Minute Journal, available for $45-$60 on Amazon. It’s your daily dose of positivity, helping you cultivate gratitude and focus on the good stuff. Start your day right, and let the good vibes flow. 📖✨ I usually will do this every week or so, and it’s a nice reminder when you look back through it when your journal gets a bit filled out! 🙂
Therapy isn’t just for crisis moments; it’s a bit like giving your emotional engine regular oil changes. I’ve been at it for seven years, and it’s been a game-changer. Think of it as a deep dive into your emotional well-being, unearthing past traumas or hidden stressors. Your subconscious plays a much bigger role in your day-to-day life than you might think. It affects your conversations, self-talk, and even your parenting style. 😅
The beauty of therapy lies in understanding your behavior patterns and how they influence your emotions and choices. By consistently attending sessions, you’ll uncover the ‘WHAT’ in your life that needs changing. Trust me, you’ll keep repeating the same patterns until you recognize them. Once you do, your brain sends signals that’ll make you think twice. Old habits will wither, and healthy ones will bloom. Remember, change doesn’t happen overnight; it’s a process. So, stay the course and stay consistent!
If you’re looking for a therapist, and are open to online sessions, I would highly recommend Toronto Wellness Counselling. I’ve been working with a Clinical Therapist and Registered Social Worker from Amy’s practise since 2021. I can’t speak more highly of this team!
Need a mental reboot? Physical activity is a game-changer. It’s all about turning negative energy into positive vibes. Sweating it out in a hot yoga session, a walk, a kickboxing class or any activity that gets your heart pumping is like hitting the reset button on your mood.
So, you might be wondering about the time and money you’ll invest in these steps. On average, I spend about $400 a month on these three pillars alone, and I invest around 25-30 hours (and that’s being conservative).
But let me make this clear: your mental health is your job. It’s not something you can delegate to someone else; it’s your responsibility.
People often ask me how I stay positive and happy. Well, it’s because I work hard to keep my energy healthy. I don’t have all the answers, but I make the effort to understand why I feel the way I do and what I need to let go of.
Your mental health will only improve if you make it a priority. That means investing time and money into your well-being and putting in the effort to stay aligned with your true self. You’re the only one who can take care of this task. Your mental health is your responsibility, and you’ve got this!
As you embark on your own mental health journey, view it as an ongoing project with no ceiling on returns. The cost is a reflection of the value you place on your well-being, and the effort you invest today shapes the fulfillment you experience tomorrow.
Your mental health is not a luxury; it’s a necessity.
Own your journey, invest in yourself, and watch the dividends of a healthier, happier life compound. You are worth every moment and every penny. Here’s to unlocking a life of abundance through the doorway of mental well-being. Cheers to the investment that lasts a lifetime!
