Emotional Health Toolbox

We all work so hard to keep positive.
We all feel challenged frequently.
This is when it’s important to have an Emotional Health Toolbox.
A place where you can go to ground yourself.

My tool box is filled with:
Mindfulness to bring you back to the here and now so you do not focus on past baggage or the fear of the future
Positive affirmations to remind yourself of who you really are – write down a few affirmations you can say daily such as “I ‘am Healthy and whole”
Your list of happiness to add into your week to cultivate joy- have a list of at least 5 things that bring you joy and add them into your week
Meditation to take a pause and reboot- taking a few minutes to be in nature or to listen to a guided meditation gives you the break you need to de-stress, be more productive and creative.
Your “flow” activities to take you outside of yourself – what activities do you love that give you a sense of timelessness?
Gratitude checks to remind you there are always little gifts and blessings throughout your day
Random acts of kindness – nothing like doing for others to make yourself feel good and boost your self-esteem
Smiling, laughing, hugging, cuddling all produce endorphins which give you a boost of happiness for free with no side effects!
A good walk in nature in the sunshine gives you a boost of Vitamin D which keeps your immune system and your hopes high
Your support system when you need some empathy, compsssion and kindness – its important to have at least 1 or 2 people who we love and love us unconditionally
My dog which is the best form of therapy -it could be a dog, cat, horse, etc.

What does your toolbox look like?
If you don’t have one start now by adding in a variety of happiness habits such as walking, journal writing, meditation, gratitude, etc.
