Hello, Overcomers! How are you?
In this life of mental health, we tend to struggle with consistency. Consistency and discipline is so important.
For me, when I’m doing well, I forget that I have meds to take. I forget that I need to get out and get sunlight. I forget that I need to keep making positive declarations. I forget that I should get some form of exercise. I forget that I must continue to engage in things that contribute to me having good mental health.
I am the first to admit, you can be working your plan and still have “moments.” However, there are many times that the problem is that we’re not working our plan.
Even if you have to write a daily routine, stick to your plan. A deviation to your plan will clue you into the idea that something is off. We can be more proactive with our mental health when we have a plan.
Community – tell your plan to your community of friends. Allow them the space to remind you of your plan to help get you back on track. Allow them the opportunity to support you. Sometimes when you’re in the midst of a “moment,” you don’t realize you’re in that moment until it becomes some days and you find it hard to pull out of it.
Having a plan, and a community who knows your plan helps everyone involved to assist you. Also, ask your counselor to help you manage as new things come up. Utilize every resource available to you.
If you work your plan, your plan will work for you.
I’d love to hear from you. What would you like for me to discuss?
How are you doing?
