May is the last month of spring… But that’s not the only thing happening this month, it is both Maternal Mental Health Awareness week and Mental Health Awareness Week with the refreshing theme of Nature. Why nature? Well during the pandemic, a time when in-person social interaction is deemed a luxury, nature has always be there for us. So, in a time when people cannot be close, we can be close with nature.
Now I’m not saying be one with nature and go disappear into the mountains for 6 months, but recognising that you need to take care of yourself first and to appreciate the little things is needed to live life to the fullest. And one of the ways to relax and reboot would be to observe Mother Nature in all her glory. Listen to rustling trees, the birds chirping, squirrels scattering, rainbows forming… Learn to live in the present and put yourself first.
Mothers are undoubtedly the backbone on society; nurturing, guiding and providing for our future Teachers, Law Makers, Firefighters and more. During this time mothers devote their life to the responsibility of their children therefore it’s really important that they get the rest bite and guidance they need to be their best self for themselves and their children’s benefit.
