With back-to-school season in gear, it is important to remember to prioritize our mental health. We can do so by creating a plan to implement self-care on a daily (or weekly) basis to keep ourselves healthy and energized throughout the school year. Staying on top of self-care from the get-go can make dealing with stress easier as the school year progresses, and we see students getting more homework, projects, and tests to complete. How can we create a healthy self-care routine? What does self-care look like? Below are just a few easy ways to incorporate self-care into our daily or weekly schedules to help cope with stress as the school year progresses.

Any relationship that you have, even the one with yourself, involves some level of trust. Some valuable questions to ask for relationships that you are in is: has trust been built, has it been maintained through time, and if it is broken can/how can it be repaired. Brene Brown, PhD defines trust as “choosing to make something important to you vulnerable to the actions of someone else.”

The Surveyors had many positive things to say in their report, including:

Anger. It is our most basic, natural primitive emotion. Anger motivates us to take action. Anger communicates our displeasure with an issue. Anger allows us to gain control of situations, and it validates how we are perceiving an experience. However, it can also overtake our true emotions and lead us to act irrationally. It can cause us to express ourselves in a manner that cannot be understood and can damage relationships with others. But, more than all of that is that it can damage the mental health of others as well as ourselves.

The snow is behind us, the birds are chirping and the sun is finally shining. Warmer weather means shedding those layers and showing off our summer bodies. But, what does it mean to be “summer body ready”?  We all have a similar picture in our head of a “sun kissed, toned, and energetic” person ready to take on the world and its adventures.  But what if we don’t feel like we are quite “ready” for summer?  What if these last few months of cold dreariness took a toll and the mirror seems to reflect that?  There are a few things to keep in mind and practice when we are not feeling confident in our skin and want to regain a healthy level of self-esteem in order to have a productive and fulfilling summer.

Happy Summer!
