This early spring weather is a reminder that growth and renewal are a constant process of what makes us human. As we watch early buds push up from the ground through the fallen leaves, we are reminded that strength and energy are needed to transform-whether it’s making a change for your health, your relationships or another area in your life.
The mental health challenge this week is to embrace this weather and give the gift of fresh air to yourself. There have been many studies in the past few years that show being outside has a positive impact on health and wellness. Put down your cell phone or turn it completely off and take a walk, sit outside, read outside, etc. even if only for 10 minutes. Being in nature naturally clears our minds, gives us ideas and ultimately gives us hope for continued growth and transformation in becoming the person we want to be. Enjoy that fresh air and fresh perspective, you deserve it!
