2023 is here. In 2023, I will turn 50, my oldest will be a senior in high school, and it will be my 15th year of teaching. You most likely will reach one or two of your own milestones this year. New Year’s is the time when we reflect on the past and make goals to propel ourselves into a better future. If you’re a person who commits to some form of self-improvement every trip around the sun, I ask you to consider a different kind of resolution this year. Commit to getting your mental health under control. It is just as important as choosing a diet program, exercise regimen, or joining a gym. If you have not visited my website before, I recommend starting with the series titled, The Pieces of the Puzzle, for ideas as to where to begin.
Our brain is the complex organ that controls every process that regulates our bodies. It deserves to be treated with the same respect given to our hearts, digestive systems, etc. If you don’t have an official mental health diagnosis, there is still room for improvement when it comes to getting mentally fit. To assist you in this endeavor, I am posting helpful links below. Take care and Happy New Year!
