I am not sure how many of you have felt almost robotic throughout the week, ensuring you attend to your work duties, home life, kids, and completing homework you may have almost forgotten. But how many of us can say that we do daily check-ins with ourselves?

“Checking in” can be described as taking the time to ask yourself throughout your busy day, “how am I feeling?” You may notice your stomach growling because you forgot to eat, and then a lightbulb may go off, and you realize, “that’s why I’m more sluggish than usual today!’

Checking in with yourself is the ultimate and necessary self-care because it keeps us on track. It can also help us to maintain our mental health. If you’re seeing a mental health professional, you may have written down goals in therapy and warning signs of being in crisis. Some of those signs, such as fatigue, irritability, and lack of focus, can all be noticed if we sit still and check in with ourselves in between our busy days. So set a reminder, check-in, and implement the healthy coping skills you’ve acquired throughout therapy or discovered on your own to prevent the worst-case scenario and maintain your overall wellness.

Creating balance in your life while also maintaining your mental/physical health is not always easy, but to successfully thrive and be the best you, a productive you in whichever way that looks like, you must take care of yourself.

One cannot pour from an empty cup, so always pour into yourself first.

If you feel like you need support after checking in, Ridgeview is here to support you 24/7 with a no cost assessment. Don’t wait! Call or walk in to see how we can help today.

Overall great program and great lectures. My small group was amazing. Being in another treatment program previously, my experience here was night and day.
