July is Minority Mental Health Month
Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid? 1 Peter 5:6-7 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Since 2008, July has been designated as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. However, presently the name is Black Indigenous people and people of color.(BIPOC).
There is a lot going on as we are in the middle of a global pandemic, Black Lives Matter Movement
mental illness is at an all time high.
It is important to monitor your behaviors and emotions to be aware of known and unknown triggers that may need to be addressed by a professional.
To ensure you do not spend a lot of your day overwhelming yourself or your family with the news updates be intentional about limiting yourself.
Start your day with meditation, a nice book or calming music. Try to enjoy a relaxing walk, yoga or a workout video. These activities can be done alone or with the family. To ensure that you incorporate a workout plan or an activity that moves your body to refrain from eating and snacking more, because emotional eating and being in the house with so many restrictions may/will interrupt your sleeping routine as well as your eating schedule.
You and your family should create and implement a daily schedule.that encourages positive activities and some physical movements.
