Taking care of mental health is key for happiness, efficiency, and self-fulfillment. Sometimes all it takes is a five-minute check-in to turn your day around. These four women are go-to resources for those not-so-happy days.
Dr. Mel Robbins @MelRobbins
Mel Robbins is a mom of three, author, and a well-known public speaker. Her bestselling book The 5 Second Rule is a must-read for moms. The rule is simple:
“The moment you have an instinct to act on a goal, you must 5-4-3-2-1 and physically move, or your brain will stop you.”
Dr. Julie Smith @DrJulieMmith
Clinical psychologist Dr. Julie Smith specializes in helping people cope with anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. Her social media pages provide daily help and inspiration. I love this quote from her recent Instagram post for people struggling with depression:
“The key here is to know that, whatever depression tells you to do, it is not in the driving seat. You get to choose what you do. You get to choose whether you go with the urge or act opposite to it. In recovery, try to act based on what you want for your future, not how you feel now.”
