Planner’s Corner: Mental Health, TIPS

Planner’s Corner: Mental Health, TIPS

Recently I was on a conference call hosted by Canada Life about mental health. The acronym used to help with our individual mental health is TIPS.

Talk to yourself positively - sometimes we say things to ourselves that we would never say to others (e.g., you’re stupid, etc.).

Breathe In, Hold, breathe out – count 1, 2, 3

Be Present & Productive – it’s easy to let our minds wander or be distracted with our electronic devices. Try to stay focused on the task at hand or the person in front of you.

Seek & Accept help.

The TIPS acronym is easy to remember. Hopefully this can help you and others.
