Taking time to do something good for your mind, making it part of your routine — it helps us be ready to take on whatever challenges are ahead. And it's as easy as checking in with how you feel.

Chanel Mann, MA, BCC

I used to compartmentalize my time with 'me time', 'family time', 'work time', etc. But all time is 'my time' when I practice presence and make mindfulness a way of life. This helps bring more meaning and a sense of ease to my day-to-day.

When I take time for my mental health, I know I’m nurturing one of the most important relationships I have: the one with myself.

“Taking care of yourself” is so much more than physical health. And sometimes we need that reminder, to not just take care of our mental health but really carve out the time for it because it can be critical to our overall health.

Making time to exercise is one way I take care of my mental health. Run, walk, cycle, swim – just take time to do something aerobic– the mental health benefits are worth it.

Taking time for our mental health is a demonstration that we believe deeply in the benefits of self-care and that we are champions of the impact that focusing on mental wellbeing can have on our whole person health.

The body-mind connection is very important. I take a few minutes a day to reflect, take a deep breath and relax. I’ve seen how taking that time benefits my overall wellbeing and health!
