Mental Health Awareness and 5 Ways We Can Help

May is Mental Health Awareness month. All of us likely need to take a moment, breathe, and think about ourselves and our teammates. How are you ACTUALLY doing? How are my colleagues ACTUALLY doing?

 

We get it. We are all too busy. There is the report due for work. The call you forgot that you had that started five minutes ago. There is the kids’ band practice. There is the realization at 4:00pm that you never ate lunch. Wait, are the in-laws coming over for dinner tonight? So, when in the cacophony that is our day are we supposed to think about ourselves, our teammates, and our Mental Health Awareness?

 

The Japanese term Kaizen refers to the act of continuous self-improvement. Finding a little bit of time here and there to work on your Mental Health Awareness. We do not expect you and your team to suddenly find an hour each day to do something for yourselves. But, if you find just 5 minutes a day, in one year you can add over thirty hours of self-reflection and self-thought.

 

Now, you are probably thinking “this all sounds great, but what are we supposed to do in that 5 minutes we have set aside for ourselves”? Don’t worry, Teamraderie has you, your team, and your Mental Health Awareness, covered.
