I witnessed many people in 2020 learn to navigate how to work from home and not being able to spend time with loved ones. What people may not realize is the toll on our mental health these changes have caused.
I look at mental health like physical health, we need to take care of it on a daily basis, just like we take care of our bodies. As we move into 2021 it is my hope we can take time to take care of mental health and make time for self care. I also understand the barriers and the question "but how"?
In this talk I hope to aid participants in knowing how to recognise mental health in themself. As well as plan on how to take care of their mental health while juggling life, such as working from home, and easing back into in person connections.
In this chat I want you to take away:
- The difference between mental health and mental illness
- How mental health may look in your life.
- What self care really is
- What actions you can do for healthier mental health
