MHAM Revisit: Be Kind and Patient with Yourself

mental health mindfulness personal development May 03, 2021

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are revisiting some of our favorite Playbook Blogs that focus on prioritizing ourselves and our own needs.

First up: Be kind and be patient with yourself

"Being kind to ourselves is important. Life is hard, and if we don’t give ourselves a break, no one else is going to. It takes patience and forgiveness of ourselves to grow. If it’s been a tough week looking for jobs, or a tough week for you in school, be kind!

Let yourself take a break, recover and most importantly, understand that nothing is going to be perfect. There will always be tough weeks or days, or months. We need to know how to get ourselves through the tough times and into better days without burning out."
