My Mental Health Self Checkup

I thought I would write about what I have found myself doing quite often over the past several months. That being, I have been giving my mental health a self assessment.

Here is the list:

  • Change in appetite – loss or binging
  • Sleeping patterns – too much or not enough
  • Withdrawal from social interactions [at this moment this is very limited]
  • Shutting down my interests – reading, writing, or maybe even my music
  • Change in physical activity

It is a short list, but, my fluctuations in my mood has been like a roller coaster. I have caught myself even thinking that maybe I need to be in a long term care home.

So dear reader, maybe you can find some sort of help from this brief post.

How about you, do you perform a mental health checkup? If you do, what is in your list? How often do you find yourself doing the checkup?

    I do a quick check-in in my bullet journal every day, so I can see patterns as they develop.

    Health check every day: walking, talking, eating healthy fish, greens, nuts, beans and occasional dark chocolate. Into meditation, acupressure, cut back on doctors and their damn medications, 79+ but look and feel like I’m in my 50s.

    It’s what you eat, drink, think, do and even do-do. Yes! It’s up to you to do!
