Mind Matters: Navigating the Waves of Mental Wellness


As the tides of life ebb and flow, our mental health often mirrors this natural rhythm, sometimes finding us in calm waters and other times in turbulent seas. Mental Health Awareness Month serves as a beacon, guiding us to acknowledge the importance of mental wellness and the courage it takes to seek a lighthouse in darker times.


Let's explore the myriad of ways we can support ourselves and others, fostering resilience and understanding that it's ok not to be okay. Join us on this journey of awareness, as we dive deep into the ocean of mental health, learning to navigate through storms and bask in the sunshine of self-care.


Recognizing the signs of mental health issues- Let's start here:

  1. Changes in Mood- Experiencing extreme mood changes, including uncontrollable highs or feelings of euphoria.

  2. Persistent Sadness or Anxiety- Feeling excessively sad, low or anxious for an extended period.

  3. Withdrawal- Avoiding friends, family and social activities you once enjoyed.

  4. Changes in Sleep or Appetite- Significant alterations in sleeping or eating habits, such as insomnia or increased hunger.

  5. Difficulty Concentrating- Experiencing confused thinking or problems with concentration and learning.

  6. Physical Symptoms- Experiencing multiple physical ailments without obvious causes, such as headaches or stomach aches.

  7. Substance Use- Overuse of substances like alcohol or drugs.

  8. Thoughts of Suicide- Thinking about suicide or self-harm


I can say that I am not ashamed to report that I have had mental health issues in the past and not so far back. What helps me to deal with or to find my inner strength to move forward without guilt and to leave the low-vibration energies, such as vengeance, jealousy, and blockages behind? I had and continue to learn to live for today, for the moment, to not dwell on what could have been or even yesterday. It is healthier for me to not dwell on yesterday, people, places, or things, no co-dependencies, and no fear of letting go. I also had to learn that living in the moment works best for me. I stay focused on what is to come and looking upwards and stay in a vibration that is high, empowering and positive, focus on happiness. It does work to also meditate and express gratitude for every change we get.
