Hi Friends!

In today's fast-paced and demanding world, it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to take care of ourselves.

As a mental health advocate, I always encourage self-care practices for mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Sometimes I feel like these reminders are so simple and that you may read them and think, DUH, Britt, we KNOW this… BUT I have found it is really easy to look over the simple practices.

Here are three things that always help keep my mental health in check!

  1. Prioritize your self-care. Make it a non-negotiable part of your day. Schedule time in your calendar for self-care practices such as meditation, going for a walk, or spending time with loved ones. I have found I am more likely to follow through with self-care practices when I schedule them as part of my day, like a meeting. Find things that make you FEEL rejuvenated!

  2. LEARN TO SAY NO! I LOVE THE NO! It's easy to get overwhelmed when you take on too much, so don't be afraid to say no to things that don't serve you. Whether it's an invitation to a social event or a request for additional work, it's okay to decline a request that doesn't align with your values or goals. Saying NO is really one of the best things we can do for ourselves.

  3. Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment. When we're busy, it's easy to get caught up in our thoughts and worries about the future or the past. Just by looking at our phones as much as we do, our nervous systems are sent into panic mode ALL THE TIME! By practicing mindfulness, you can train your mind to focus on the NOW and reduce stress and anxiety. It will also help you enjoy the everyday pleasures of your life!

I think the biggest thing to remember is that self-care is NOT SELFISH. It is actually the best thing we can do not only for ourselves—and for those we love around us. By prioritizing your self-care, finding activities that work for you, learning to say no, practicing mindfulness, and seeking support when needed, you can improve your well-being and lead a more fulfilling and happy life!
