Checking in with your loved one shouldn’t be awkward. If you feel stuck not knowing how to ask DEEP questions about a potential mental health concern, use these 🧊 ice breakers as a way to successfully start up healthy conversations with the people that mean most to you:
👂 How have you been doing? Listen without interruptions.
✨ How’s your stress level? Acknowledge their feelings.
👌 Have you been eating or sleeping well? Be empathetic towards their emotions.
💭 Is there anything you want to talk about? Show your unwavering support.
💛 Are you open to talking to a professional? Remind them that it’s OK to ask for help.
🕛 When’s the best time to check in again? Make time for follow-ups.
Screen fatigue? It’s a real thing! Staring at your computer or phone screen for long periods of time can bring about physical symptoms like headaches, eye strain, eye redness and blurred vision.🧑💻 But, it can also cause sensory overload which often leads to stress, irritability, loss of focus and anxiety.
Here’s where the 20-20-20 rule comes in! For every 20 minutes ⏱️ of screen time, spend 20 seconds looking and something 20 feet away from you. This allows your eye muscles to relax and gives your brain a much-needed breather. 😮💨

Have you been running on EMPTY lately? 🚙💨
Accepting yourself for who you are can be a challenging, but necessary step to building resilience, unwavering confidence, and improved overall mental wellness! Self-acceptance is all about accepting yourself, your flaws, weaknesses and shortcomings, instead of hating all of the parts of yourself that you dislike.

🙏 Forgive yourself
📘 Practice gratitude
💪 Identify your strengths
🎉 Celebrate your victories
💙 Set realistic self-love goals
📣 Give yourself positive pep talks
🤗 Embrace what makes you different
✨ Focus on the things you can change
Have you ever tried to go to sleep but can’t because your mind keeps racing? 😵💫 There are many factors that can contribute to a restless mind, including stress, anxiety disorders, depression disorders, Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and other mental health conditions.
Overthinking 💭 at night time not only ruins the quality of your sleep, but can further agitate and escalate the root cause of your racing thoughts. 👎
Consider trying these tactics to help shut off your brain:
🕢 Set aside time to wind-down. About 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime, dim the lights, put the screens down and leave the rest of your tasks to tomorrow.
😌 Create a soothing bedtime routine. Find an activity that relaxes you like taking a warm bath, practicing yoga or journaling.
🔈Try background noise. White, brown and pink noise are known to create a consistent sonic environment that some people find calming.
🤙Seek help from a professional. If racing thoughts are keeping you up on a consistent basis, your therapist can help you identify and manage these thought patterns.
