For the next 5 days, I challenge you to check in with you. Let’s get revived in five!

Just five minutes of dedicated self-care time every day can reduce our stress and improve our mood! Join me and take care of yourself for five minutes (that’s only 300 seconds) every day for the next five days.

Here’s how to get started: First, simply ask yourself, “how am I actually doing today?” Maybe you’re sad, excited, anxious, happy, or this emoji. Second, honor that feeling and decide what you want to do with it. If you’re feeling sad, maybe you set aside some crying time. If you’re feeling proud, maybe you organize a celebration with loved ones! And lastly, carve out just five minutes for whatever that activity is. You can even set a timer!

I'm all about any service that makes it easier to access prescription treatment for mental health. When you’re struggling, one of the last things you want is to have to jump through hoops to get the care you need. I appreciate that Minded is making treatment for anxiety, depression, sleep and more easier by offering psychiatric guidance from home. Take 50% off your first month with code MINDEDNESS!
