I need to take a mental health day, but what should I actually do on my day off?
Look after yourself. I also like the term “self-care day” that might mean tackling your to do list around the house; not having things loom over you can ease stress. it could mean doing activities that make you feel good – taking a yoga class, reading a book, going go a walk. You can also start forming habits to carry into the future, like mediating or journaling. A mental heal day doesn’t always mean there’s something seriously wrong with your mental health. Still if you feel that a day is not enough, it might be time to seek help, use your mental -health day to find a therapist.
