Nourish Your Mind: Build Your Ultimate Mental Health Salad

Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or like you’re just going through the motions? Just like our bodies need nourishing foods for health, our minds thrive on a variety of positive practices and supports. It’s time to put a fresh spin on self-care!

What is a Mental Health Salad?

Think of your mental wellbeing as a satisfying, delicious salad. Here’s how it works:

  • The Bowl: This is your foundation! Healthy sleep, a balanced diet, and some movement lay the groundwork for a stable, flourishing mind.
  • The Fruits: A vibrant mix of activities you enjoy, supportive connections, and things that ignite your passions fill you with energy and purpose.
  • The Ice Cream: Your special indulgence! That one thing that instantly brings comfort and a moment of pure joy.
  • Custard or Honey: Add an extra layer of sweetness. Self-kindness, mindfulness, or the things that truly nurture your soul.
  • Cherry on Top: A small but meaningful goal to work towards, boosting your sense of accomplishment and wellbeing.
  • Spoon/Fork: It’s not just about ingredients, it’s about action! Choose what brings you benefits and actively build them into your life.

Why Build Your Salad?

  • Variety is Key: Your mind, like your body, needs different “nutrients” to thrive.
  • Tailored to You: There are no right or wrong ingredients – focus on what works for you!
  • Fun & Empowering: Visualizing your wellbeing this way puts you in the driver’s seat.
