I am having a mental health day – sort of.
My good friend S is in town from Arizona. There was a death in her family so I took today off to “be there for her.” Not quite sure what that means but “there” I am. I decided to take this day off at the last minute, and it’s strange not to go to the office when you have not planned something or you are sick.
In all seriousness, I do believe that you need to take time to take care of your mind. We are constantly barraged with important messages about physical fitness – mental fitness is just as important. Did you know that there is a World Mental Health Day sponsored by the World Health Organization? Okay, it may be a little more important than my individual day!
Anyway, I will enjoy my mental health day. I hope you enjoy your day too. I think I need it after all the stress of the Olympics!
