What's New? I created a page titled Counselling Weekly Activities. These activities are not mandatory. They are fun activities to create positive mental health. Each day has a focus, a quick activity, and links attached to do the activities.
Check in with yourself and your loved ones to see how everyone's emotions are. Think to yourself: What emotions am I feeling right now? Acknowledge that it is okay to have these emotions - whether they are emotions we like having such as joy, happiness, excitement; or negative emotions such as anger, sadness, loneliness. What can I do to make my day the best I can? Doing a temperature check like this can help you identify early whether there are negative emotions you need to check and not let rule your day.
