If you're like me, the past few years have been tough on your mental health. The planet is dying, our government is a circus, Instagram is more addictive than many schedule 1 substances, and then you've got Mercury constantly in retrograde or something like that – not to mention my actual diagnoses.
With all this going on, I've been fighting my mind every day to live a present, happy life. I developed my perfect routine (meditation, reading, journaling, exercise, etc), but then fail to stick with it. And when I fail to stick to my routine, I may be fine for a few days, but inevitably sink back into my bad habits and ultimately the fog of depression – because WITH MENTAL HEALTH, THERE IS NO OFF-SEASON.
That's why we at the Mental Health League developed...
THE NO OFF-SEASON CHALLENGE
We want 2019 to be the mentally healthiest year on record, but we can't do it alone. WE NEED YOU!
What is the No Off-Season Challenge?
It's committing to make your mental health a priority in 2019 EVERY DAY by following your playbook, tracking your progress, and checking in with your community.
How does it work?
It's simple. Every day is a game that you're trying to win. At the end of every day, you simply mark if you won or lost the day and why on your MHL Scorecard.
How do I win the day?
A "win" will be different for everyone. It could simply be getting out of bed and going to work, it could be sticking to your routine, taking medication, or working towards your goals. Whatever it is, you just need to track it.
How will that help me prioritize my mental health?
It seems too easy, but it helps in such a big way. By marking your wins and losses, you can easily see how you're doing. By writing a simple reason as to why, you force yourself to confront things getting in your way. If you see yourself losing day after day for the same reason, you know what you need to work on. If you have a win streak, you're motivated to keep it going. Beyond that, if you share your progress with your community, they can help hold you accountable.
