The graphic alone says enough – it is a cold morning outside. Perhaps not the coldest we’ve had this year, nor in the past, but a chilly one nonetheless.
It is also, Thursday, January 28, which means in Canada it is Bell Let’s Talk Day.
Mental health or our own mental wellness as I like to refer to it as, is something we all deal with.
Yes….ALL OF US deal with mental wellness issues to some extent or another.
The problem is that most of us don’t want like the idea of talking about; thinking about or dealing with our own concerns and issues, let alone the mental wellness issues and concerns that others have.
And all of this happens in what we might have called in the past “normal times” or certainly pre-COVID. Where we are in history right this very moment, makes it perhaps the best time to start our own mental wellness conversation.
Here’s a link to some Canada related COVID mental wellness resources.
So, this isn’t another post like I’ve done in the past years on dealing with anxiety or ways to cope mentally while navigating through the COVID_19 pandemic. Been there; done that; will likely post on these issues again.
With every use of #BellLetsTalk, Bell will donate 5 cents towards mental health initiatives in Canada. That’s basically how it goes today.
If you’re living in Canada and reading this….just participate today in Bell Let’s Talk if you can. Chances are you are on some other type of social media. Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram to name a few. Click here to get the details.
Seems pretty simple to me.
