My local TV Station asked to interview me on “Creating a Healthy Headspace.” My first thought was to decline that baby fast! I mean c’mon I’m dealing with a whole lot of you know what right now. Who am I to act like I’ve got all my crap together. Well, I shared the “opportunity” with my niece, and before I knew it, I had some great things to share. Here’s a few to help you:
1. If you’re struggling with depression, low energy level, anxiety, or something similar, see a doctor to make sure you’re ok.
- I was feeling depressed, lacking energy, and just not myself, so I went to the doctor and got a complete blood workup. Guess what? I was in desperate need of vitamins and hormones. I’ve been taking my meds/vitamins for three weeks, and I’m starting to feel like my self again.
2. If you’re working from home, get a change of scenery.
- Many of us are working from home right now, and we’re likely sitting in the same location, staring at the same four walls day after day. You may feel confined, stuck, and bored! I’ve found working outside gives me more than fresh air, it gives me energy, lifts my mood, and makes me feel more creative. Get some sunshine. Try it for 30 minutes once a day, and let me know how you feel and think.
3. If you need support, help, or encouragement, tap into your inner circle.
- If you know me at all, you know I’m a huge fan of building and being part of a powerful inner circle. We all need a support group, people who lift us up, teach us, encourage us, and help us deal with challenges. Resist the urge of thinking, “I can or should be able to do this all by myself.” There’s absolutely nothing wrong with asking for help. Read that again, this time out loud. Plus, when you ask for help, you’re showing someone else that it’s ok to ask for help too.
Guess it’s time to follow up and say yes to that interview!
