The month of May marks spring flowers, a sample of summer weather, and more importantly, Mental Health Awareness Month. While many of us spend a significant amount of time prioritizing our physical being, many of us neglect our mental wellness.

According to the National Alliance For Mental Health, millions of Americans deal with mental illness daily, however, due to stigmas, stereotypes and overall misunderstanding surrounding mental illness, many battle it in secret. The advocacy group is working to shift that narrative and change how the nation discusses the topic.

Now that we are all working to change how mental illness is depicted and talked about, someone doesn't need to have a formal diagnosis to take care of their mental health. According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, chronic stress increases an individual's risk for both mental and physical health problems. The best way to reduce stress is to practice self-care.

There are a variety of tips, tricks and tools used to relax the mind. For example, Beaumont Health states: "Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work."

CBD has also been known to help relax both the mind and body. According to Mind Body Green, the hemp-derived product is useful when reducing both physical and mental stressors.

During May, and every day of the year, we recommend taking the time to prioritize your overall well-being.
