The most important thing for your family to do to reclaim your collective mental health is establishing a family wellness routine. Lifestyle choices and activities shape the brain. They set you up for success or failure. They create healthy brains in a way that medicines have not been shown to do, and they have almost no side effects. What does a family wellness routine entail?
- Physical Activity
- Good Nutrition
- Restful Sleep
- Community Engagement
These are what I believe to be the staples of mental wellness. As I post articles on these topics, I will link to them here. This list isn’t exhaustive, but it is powerful. Different kids and different families will need to emphasize certain concepts over others and I’ll try my best to guide you as we go.
