It’s Mental Health Awareness Month: Create Yourself Anew

Mental health awareness month is about creating ourselves. Use mindfulness and a metaphor to boost your mental health, wellbeing.

I love that Mental Health Awareness Month is in May. It’s the height of
spring, and flowers are in bloom, leaves are unfurling, and birds are soaring as they build their nests. Signs of life abound when we tune in mindfully to enjoy them. May is the perfect metaphor for mental health (note that the representative color is even green).

 

Just as the earth is waking up and creating itself anew, so, too, can we. It’s what mental health and wellbeing are all about. This is an ongoing process and spans across all months, but Mental Health Awareness Month shines sunlight on the process on purpose, a reminder that we can take charge of ourselves and our wellbeing. We live an ever-flowing journey of creating ourselves anew.
