For my mental health I walk to and from work. It's only a few blocks but it gives me a great way to pause, before and after my work day, to breathe the fresh air and watch the changing seasons.

This workshop came at a very tough time in my life and it was much needed for me. It was a great reminder of how to handle all emotions and to continue to care for myself (and my family) personally and professionally.

Mental health matters because it impacts all of us - our family, friends, and community. When we all strive to listen more, support one another, do what we can, and be mindful, good things happen.

Any time the board comes together to help with a community event it makes me very happy to a part of the MHA organization.

What gratitude means to me is being healthy and giving. I am thankful for every day of life and giving to all. A few of my favorite things are movies, travel and being with my son Zack.
For my mental health I work out every day. It really helps me feel the best physically, psychologically, and emotionally. For cardio, I mix it up between walking, running, and biking, and I always work in 20 minutes of weights or body weight exercises.

For our mental health, we make up mindful breathing techniques to use before tests, when frustrated, or when we need to calm down.

Mental Health Matters
Welcome to our quarterly newsletter featuring our Fall 2020 edition! Current topics include: Message from our Executive Director and Board President, Mental Health Screening Saves Lives, "In the Open" Mental Health Podcast, The State of Mental Health in America Report, Bell Seal Workplace Mental Health Designation, Upcoming Event: Expert Wellness Panel Back to School Check-ins.
This week's practice is inspired by a brief yet profound article Two Keys for Living Slowly and Connected by Danae Smith of This Wondrous Life. The simplicity of these two pieces truly demonstrates a "Less is More" philosophy that can help us slow down and connect more deeply to ourselves and our lives.
Let's take a moment to practice being mindful of our ways of thinking, habits, emotional responses, and relationships. When we take time to slow down and reflect on the way we react to things in our lives, it can give us better insight into whether we want to continue these habits that may produce unwanted and unhealthy results.
