Happy Memorial Day

With the extended holiday weekend upon us, many of us are spending time with loved ones, relaxing, traveling or doing other things we enjoy.

This is a good time to review the national education campaign Live Your Life Well from our friends at Mental Health America (MHA).

The basis of this campaign is 10 ways to manage stress better. The tools are listed below. The details on each one can be found at MHA's website.

The 10 Tools
1. Connect with others
2. Stay positive
3. Get physically active
4. Help others
5. Get enough sleep
6. Create joy and satisfaction
7. Eat well.
8. Take care of your spirit.
9. Deal better with hard times.
10. Get professional help when you need it.

We would like to wish you an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!  The NAMI office will be closed on Monday, May 31.  For information or resources on recovering from mental illness, visit our website.
