BE MENTALLY HEALTHY

Good mental health allows you to enjoy the highs and navigate the lows of everyday life.

There are times, though, when you could feel “off.” Thoughts, behaviors and/or social interactions change dramatically. You may even feel isolated. During these times, understand that you are not alone. Your Highlander family is here to listen, support and get you moving forward once again.

 

What Being Mentally Healthy Feels Like:

  • A sense of belonging and support
  • Generally positive attitude and outlook
  • Stress feels motivating versus overwhelming
  • Thoughts, behavior and interactions feel natural to you
  • The ability to bounce back or be resilient on those not so positive days

 

How You Can Feel Mentally Healthy

  • Ask for help in areas where you are struggling.
  • Connect with others and build new relationships.
  • Contribute to your community by volunteering for a good cause.
  • Get plenty of sleep and downtime to stay rested and refreshed.
  • Make time for activities, hobbies and projects you enjoy.
  • Practice mindfulness to be in the moment.
  • Take care of yourself by being active and eating well.
