How Are You Really Doing?: Tools for Mental Health Awareness Month
Many times, people ask how you are. Social curtesy? Yes. Kindness? Yes. And most of the time answering with a simple reply is fine. But what about those times when worry and anxiety take over and you truthfully aren’t ok? When this happens, mindfulness can help.
Mindfulness is about being attentive and open to what’s happening right now without judging it as good or bad, right or wrong, pleasant or unpleasant. With mindfulness, we can learn how to manage difficult emotions by changing the way we relate to discomfort and unease.
During Mental Health Awareness Month in May, eM Life will have seven Mindful Dailies focused on anxiety and depression during the week of 05/19/2020. You have access to the Mindful Dailies once you log-in to your account or enroll in eM Life.
So, what are you waiting for? Mindfulness can help you with everything from everyday stressors to chronic conditions. Enhance your mental wellbeing with the mindfulness tools available at eM Life.
