How and When to Take a Mental Health Day

Everyone has to deal with varying levels of stress. This can be particularly difficult to manage if you also have symptoms of depression or anxiety. When you feel like your stress levels have reached their peak, it might be time to take a quick break to reset.

A mental health day is a day you take off from work or school, and minimize any commitments or responsibilities. You can use this time to focus on relieving stress, relaxing, having fun, and preventing burnout.

While one day might not solve heavy underlying problems that lead to burnout, a mental health day can provide a much-needed break to pause, regroup, and come back with greater levels of energy and a fresh, less-stressed perspective.

Check in with Family & Friends:
Start a group text with friends you don’t see very often. All it takes is a simple “Just checking in!”
Practice Self-Care
Schedule daily reminders in your phone to do something you love or to do a self-care activity. Make a schedule for breaks in your day and do your best to stick to it!
