So often we neglect our mental health. When we need help most, sometimes days, weeks, and even months can go by before we decide to take action and get help for ourselves.
In my experience, the demands of graduate school can wear me thin. There are times when I know I should be taking better care of myself, but I let my busy schedule become a deterrent or an excuse.
We are all busy, but this is a poor justification to not take care of ourselves. Our mental health must be a top priority for us all. Without a healthy brain, our health is nothing. And without our health, we are nothing.
To me, ‘Take Care’ is a reminder to take my mental health seriously, and to not let it become neglected.
