Give Your Mental Health A Fighting Chance

Tonight I’m flying back from two back to back trips I’ve been on the last few weeks. I had some awesome experiences on my trip that I’m super excited to share with all of you, but given that my plane won’t get me back home until long after midnight tonight I think I’ll postpone sharing my experiences until tomorrow. In the meantime, my daughter Ashley was kind enough to write a guest blog for me to share with all of you:

Give Your Mental Health A Fighting Chance

“I believe depression is legitimate. But I also believe that if you don’t:

*Eat nutritious foods
*Get sunlight
*Get enough sleep
*Consume positive material
*Surround yourself with support

Then you aren’t giving yourself a fighting chance.”

 – Matt Stephens

I LOVE this quote because it totally rings true. Any time I have ever felt down, sorry for myself, sluggish, heavy-hearted, anxious, or depressed it has stemmed from one or multiple of these bullet points on the list above. It is so crucial for us to take care of our bodies so that our minds can be clear. When we do we are able to increase our concentration, engage in more meaningful interactions, be more observant, have more energy to help others struggling around us, stimulate our creativity, feel at peace, and experience life with those we love. When we master our bodies, we master our minds.

I invite everyone who has ever experienced mental illness in even the slightest degree to implement the above list. If we do, we can all have a fighting chance at combating these serious mental/emotional diseases and feel JOY! 🙂
