May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Awareness Month
With warmer weather, get out and enjoy some time in nature. Tend to your mental and physical well-being by taking a walk, attending a spring sporting event, enjoying music in the park, hiking in Clifty, strolling along the Riverwalk....Wow, do we have lots of choices in Madison!
Attend to your social well-being by getting together with friends and family, connecting with an old friend or colleague, or attending graduation. You can even improve well-being by spending some time focusing on your environment. Tidy up your space, clean a closet, or wash windows. Who knew spring cleaning could improve your well-being!?
Here's hoping some summer fun and relaxation comes your way and has a positive influence on all aspects of your wellness!
