When the Team UP Behavioral Health Action Team decided to launch a social media campaign asking folks to describe what is helping them through this challenging time, I found myself reflecting deeply about my response. How do I wake up to these uncertain and volatile days and stay grounded, sane, in my heart space, remember to be grateful, and remain connected? Well, quite frankly, I often don’t! But it’s a worthy goal. Overall, I have prioritized my self-care in a way that I never have before. I get to take care of me and my heart and spirit with a new kind of zeal. What does that look like? For me, it is weekly therapy appointments, a renewed commitment to nourishing my relationships with people, animals, and plants, and an enormous amount of time in the outdoors, including as much time in or on water as possible. When I am overwhelmed, anxious, fearful, or otherwise challenged (which is no infrequent occurrence these days), I look to these anchors for support. An added bonus to reflecting on what has been supporting me: gratitude! Even as I type these things, I feel verklempt and immensely grateful that I have the amount of privilege in my life to pursue these avenues of self-care. So, what helps you during these unprecedented times?
The Behavioral Health Action Team seeks to normalize this kind of sharing. They hope that through their campaign, based on the Sources of Strength model "What Helps Me," there will be bigger, deeper conversations spurred, and that folks will feel a sense of connection and camaraderie. Ultimately, they hope to break down stigma around help-seeking behavior and accessing behavioral health care. The team is planning to enlist the help of people and agencies throughout Montezuma and Dolores Counties to create their own posts and join in the campaign. They'll even show up with props and equipment to assist in creating posts! Stay tuned to the Team UP Southwest Colorado Facebook page to witness or join in on the fun.
