Take a Mental Health Day
What to do on a mental health day to rejuvenate and not vegetate
E.N.J.O.Y it!
Emotional to do list - what are all the things keeping you from a good nights rest? List them out
Nap! - naps are empirically supported when it comes to reducing stress. Take a short sleep break to rest and recharge. If you’re not a napper, take this time to knock out something on that emotional to do list.
Joy activity - get outside and do one thing that brings you joy.
Outline what you need to not burn out - how can i tell when i am not functioning at my best? How can i tell when work is taking over my life? How can i notice stress before it gets critical? What am I unmotivated to do? (Do I have to do it?)
Your favorite thing - end your day with one of your favorite things. Whatever it is, make space to end your mental health day with a dopamine boost!
