Feng Shui Bedroom

May is Mental Health Month

Since 1949, Mental Health America has sponsored Mental Health Month during May. This year’s focus is on taking time to look at your surroundings and within yourself to see how they might be affecting you.

From your home to your neighborhood to the beautiful spaces in nature, many factors come into play regarding your mental wellness. Knowing what you can control makes all the difference in handling stress.

Your Home Environment: Keep your space tidy, sleep-friendly, and surround yourself with things that help you reduce stress and feel calm.

Your Community: Get to know the people living around you and become a part of your community.

Outdoor Spaces: Connect with nature. Hike in the woods, sit in a park, or just keep the shades open to bring in the natural light.

If you’re taking steps to improve your surroundings but are still struggling, let One Source EAP help, call One Source EAP at 800-300-0628.

Calls are answered 24/7/365 and are entirely confidential.
