Self-Care Saturday (5 Things to Try Today)
Saturday is a good time to practice self-care.
Ideally, you should be doing something to care for your mental health every day, but start small if you have to.
It’s more important that you just do something.
We live in a fast-paced frenetic world. Keep trying self-care activities until you figure out what is the best one for YOU.
This issue contains 5 things you can try today!

Focus on your breathing
Breathing? Yes, breathing. It sounds stupid, but I know I sometimes forget to breathe when I’m tense.
An interesting example, there have been more and more reports that people tend to hold their breath when they are waiting for their email to load.
Go for a walk
Going for walk changes your physical state, which has an impact on your mental/emotional state. Remember, mental health is not just about your thoughts. It’s an interconnected system.
How does going for a walk change how you feel?
Maybe throw some music into the mix. See how that changes your mood.
Experiment, experiment, experiment.
Read something to make you think in a different way
Reading, by its very nature, is peaceful activity, provided that you are reading something that doesn’t make you agitated.
Pick up a favorite book that you haven’t read in a while.
Here’s a nice, positive site that focuses on mental health. It’s called Tiny Buddha.
Pro tip: AVOID the news today and most day.
Go to gym, even if it’s for 5 minutes
Why 5 minutes? Because simply completing the act of going to the gym will motivate you. You’ll feel accomplished.
And once you get there, you’re more likely to want to stay there and make the most of it!
Call someone who values the REAL you
There are people who like you, and then there are people who like you for you.
Do you know what I mean?
Call someone who likes you for you–someone who will really listen to what you have to say and validate your experience.

The Mental Health Update is an inspirational mental health newsletter containing authentic mental health articles that make mental health issues like depression, anxiety, OCD meaningful AND accessible.

This is different from typical mental health newsletters.

It's not just an Anxiety Email Newsletter or a Depression Email Newsletter - It's timeless mental health wisdom and inspiration to start your day in a thoughtful, uplifting way.

I was tired of other mental health newsletters blasting out generic lists of links. And I was especially tired of other mental health newsletters not focusing on the everyday reality of mental health issues.

So I decided to come up with a mental health newsletter I wanted to read. This health newsletter is like a caring friend that just wants you to feel better.

Mental health awareness articles don't need to be all doom and gloom and filled with jargon.

With The Mental Health Update email newsletter, you'll get practical mental health information, tips, and new ways to view the world.

We discuss topics like anxiety, depression, OCD, the mental health to mental illness spectrum, social and communication skills, and much, much more.

You deserve to get helpful mental health information that you can actually apply to your life.

This is what a few subscribers had to say about this mental health newsletter:

"If you haven't yet subscribed to Jordan's mental health newsletter, you absolutely should. It's chock full of good stuff to read and will help make your day better. Not unlike a daily vitamin for your mental health and soul..." - JR

"Daily encouragement from someone who has “been there” when it comes to mental health struggles. Comes in the form of stories and simple, actionable tips for reframing and working with - and through - your issues. One of the few newsletters that has survived my ruthless inbox decluttering sprees. Highly recommended!" - Kelila

"Jordan's mental health update is a welcomed daily email in my inbox. It often provides me with a chance to break from the mundane tasks of working in an office and take a moment for myself to hear his thoughtful and well put together thoughts on many aspects of mental health. As someone who works in the psychology field it's often a nice reminder and way of grounding myself to all the great work that's going on and the journey we all must take in supporting mental health. Thank you Jordan!" - Rob
