Do you ever feel like you just need to shake it off? Get all the gunk (stress) you’ve been carrying around and throw it at the wall?! Everyone can use some good advice to boost your mental health. And everyone’s heard from the experts. So we wanted to go to the source. How do you shake off your bad mood and turn that frown upside down?
We all suffer from stress or anxiety, anger or depression, excessive feelings of worry or guilt. But, how do you deal with it? If you’re like most adults, you were brought up to believe you just suck it up and move on, but that’s not the case anymore. Since we were kids there has been so much work done for mental health awareness that proves it’s not only okay to acknowledge what’s going on in your head, but to address it, talk about it, and find a way to quiet things down.
How do you find peace?
There are so many ways to quiet the storm, many are listed below. But if you feel like you need more than a day off, more than a friend’s ear, there is help accessible to you right now. You can find a therapist here or contact the amazing people at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention who are always looking for volunteers, and donations and are always there to help.
This article was written on May 23rd, 2023, which also happens to be 143 Day in Pennsylvania. 1-4-3 is what Mr. Rogers used to represent the words I l-o-v-e y-o-u. So every year, on May 23rd, the 143rd day of the year, Pennsylvanians are encouraged to make a conscious effort to be kind.
