Mental Health Tip

 

Listen to music.

Music affects our emotions and can be extremely helpful in extremely stressful situations. Soothing music can slow heart rate and lower blood pressure to distract us from our worries. #VTBetterTogether

Mental Health Counseling Week

Today marks the start of Mental Health Counseling Week. Help us end the stigma around mental health treatment and care. Know that you are never alone and know what resources are available to you. #VTBetterTogether

Mental Health Tip

 

Avoid Procrastination.

One way to control stress is to stay on top of your priorities. Worrying about something that you need to do takes a lot of energy. Procrastinating undesirable tasks takes more effort than just doing them. Book a library session with your favorite study buddy. #VTBetterTogether

Well-being Day

Tomorrow, April 26th, is your fifth and final well-being day of the semester. Take this day to focus on your mental health and well-being! To spread happiness, share ideas on how to spend the day. Tomorrow, post photos of you enjoying your well-being day and use the hashtag #VTBetterTogether. 

Out of Darkness Walk

Take a walk today in support of suicide prevention. Just know that you are never alone and that Together we are Better.

“The Community Walks, held in hundreds of cities across the country, are the core of the Out of the Darkness movement, which began in 2004. These events give people the courage to open up about their own connections to the cause, and a platform to create a culture that’s smarter about mental health. Friends, family members, neighbors and coworkers walk side-by-side, supporting each other and in memory of those we’ve lost.” -National Suicide Prevention Team #TogetherToFightSuicide #VTBetterTogether
