Woman-Smiling-Table-guesthouseIt is always a good idea to work with a professional if you may be in a crisis. Having a strong support system in place can make all the difference in maintaining your mental health. Learning the skills and tools necessary to understand what you are feeling is a great first step in knowing how to work through your emotions. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are struggling with your mental health.


We are our own harshest critics a lot of the time. We tend to see our faults more clearly than anyone else does. Remember to treat yourself nicely and with self-compassion. Try to treat yourself just like you would treat someone you love going through a hard time. You wouldn’t be mean or make negative comments to someone you love, so why be harsh on yourself? Try saying some positive affirmations or doing some calming activities. Some of us may even need simply to rest. Remind yourself that it is okay to take some time to focus on yourself.

High-Quality Connections

Having a strong support system is very important for everyone. We all need someone to call, someone to lean on, and someone we know will always be loving and supportive. If you find yourself struggling, reach out to someone. You never need to feel alone; there is always someone ready to support you.

Focus on Character Strengths

Focus on what makes you amazing. Everyone has both strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes when we struggle with our mental health or addiction, we tend to focus on our weaknesses. Try to fight that urge and pinpoint your unique strengths. You may be amazed at what thinking positively can do for your mental health.

Going through mental health challenges, addiction, or trauma can be challenging. You may feel defeated, worn out, or alone. You may want to feel better but do not know-how. Remember to treat yourself with self-compassion. Talk nicely to yourself, and focus on your strengths. Treat yourself like you would treat a loved one. Most importantly, reach out to someone. Talking through what you are feeling can be extremely helpful. Realizing you may need help can be a big and scary step. Here at The Guest House, we are ready to help. We understand that everyone is on a unique journey and will need individualized support and treatment. Call us today to learn more about how we can specifically help you at (855) 483-7800.
