MENTAL HEALTH MONDAY!
This week in our morning meeting, High School East CAP student, Jordyn Mizrachi shared information to increase awareness of how powerful our Inner Voice can be. Inner Voice is a hunch, a feeling, a sense--something everyone has, and oftentimes we ignore it! Your inner voice or intuition arises as a feeling within your body that only you experience. It is the ultimate act of trusting yourself. Throughout life many people will have opinions and ideas about what's best for you, some held with good intentions and others coming from a place of harm or jealousy. It is often difficult to know which are good, and which are bad; so in most cases it is beneficial to listen to that voice in your head or in your heart, to guide you in the right direction. It is important to pause, take a deep breath, relax, go for a walk, and let your inner thoughts flow freely.
If you need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling, 2NDFLOOR is a confidential and anonymous helpline for New Jersey's youth. They are here to help you find solutions to the problems that you face at home, at school, or at play. If you need to talk about an issue or problem that you are facing call or text 888-222-2228.
