May is Mental Health Awareness Month

We love a chance to talk about mental health, and this is mental health awareness month!

Mental Health America created a calendar with one simple thing you can do each day of the month to improve your mental health. Some of the challenges include:

  • May 4th: Do something with friends and family – have a cookout, go to a park, or play a game. People are 12 times more likely to feel happy on days that they spend 6-7 hours with friends and family.
  • May 7th: Take 30 minutes to go for a walk in nature – it could be a stroll through a park, or a hike in the woods. Being in nature can increase energy levels, reduce depression, and boost well-being.
  • May 23rd: Make a list of activities you enjoy. Set aside time each week to focus on yourself and what makes you happy
