Establishing a Good Nighttime Routine for Mental Health

When it comes to mental health, a good nighttime routine can make all the difference. A consistent evening ritual can reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and set you up for a better day ahead. Let’s dive into how to establish a routine that nurtures your mental well-being

Rise and Shine

Most days feel a little more rise and grind then rise and shine. Most mornings are roll out of bed, brush your teeth and stumble to the coffee maker situations. So instead of doing what you always do, consider incorporating a focus on your mental health from the moment you wake up. Shocking thought right? Stick with us here, but a mindful morning routine not only prepares your body for the day ahead, but also sets a positive mental and emotional tone. Here's an example that you can use as a template, but feel free to play around with it and make it your own:


Remembering 9/11: Reflection, Resilience, and Mental Health

September 11 is etched in the collective memory of millions, a day that, for many, symbolizes loss, heroism, unity, and trauma. As we look back on the events of that tragic day, it’s crucial to consider the long-term psychological impact, the resilience of the human spirit, and the ways we can support one another during times of collective trauma.

Embracing Optimism in a Pessimistic World

Life is filled with challenges and uncertainties, which makes it really easy to adopt a cynical view and see the proverbial glass as half empty. However, choosing to view life from a more positive perspective has undeniable benefits for our mental, emotional, and even physical health. Easy it is not, because let’s be realistic, looking on the bright side of life can feel a bit forced. Our daily existence can often feel like a grind and seeing things through an optimistic filter seems like a lot of effort.


The Tides of Grief

Grief is the emotional response to loss and is a universal, yet profoundly personal journey. It can leave you feeling sad, lonely, angry, and numb. Sometimes grief can feel like a tidal wave that knocks you off your feet and other times it might resemble a quiet undercurrent, subtly affecting your daily life.
