4 Tips for Protecting Your Mental Health as a Millennial

Happy Monday, Beautiful Souls! Welcome back to Mind Reimagined, where we take a holistic view of our mental health and wellness through the arts, community, and self-care. I know it's been a while since I last posted a blog, but I have been preparing to graduate, and the end of that road is finally here. I walk across the stage next month, thankfully, and I look forward to keeping the mental health and wellness content going.


In today's blog, I wanted to discuss how we as millennials can protect our mental health, whether from strangers, our loved ones, or even ourselves. This last year and a half has been a lot; from COVID, to the killing of unarmed black men, and still trying to keep up with that no days off culture. It's been hard on the mind and body. It can be so challenging to find a time to take care of yourself when you're always worried about how you need to do more and how you can improve. If you are interested in learning more ways to protect your mental health or just some all-around wisdom for your mental health journey as a millennial, keep reading.


Mental and emotional wellness is not only about self-care and self-love but also about showing compassion and empathy for others. Emphasizing loving yourself is a great starting point of excellent mental health, but it is not the only thing that needs to happen. Extending that same compassion, patience, and love for others also helps to improve wellness by turning those thoughts about others into a positive light rather than a negative one.


Another thing is that mental and emotional turmoil can cause an imbalance and show itself in other areas of your life. For my creatives out there, if you're experiencing stress and anxiety in your life, it can be hard to show up when creating ideas and content and can hinder the creative juices from flowing.


Also, make sure to educate yourself on your own experiences to understand how you are affected by certain situations that happen in society and within your life. Traumatic childhood experiences such as intimate and community violence and food and housing insecurity can affect you even as an adult. Just because certain things happen all the time, it doesn't make it acceptable.


Lastly, make sure to be fierce and have some courage when guarding your mental and emotional health. That means shedding that stigma that going to therapy makes you crazy, less than, or any other thing that people come up with. So go to therapy, have a good routine that further feeds self-care, and weed out those things that are no longer serving you.


If you all would like any resources on coping with life stressors, work-life balance, or just overall improvement of mental wellness, make sure that we connect. It's so good to be back y'all; I can't wait to share everything I have learned in the last few months.


Have a fantastic day and go think GOOD thoughts
