???? Have you reached out to support someone today? Are you going to?
And, what has the photo got to do with this?
???? On a spur of the moment trip to Lightning Ridge recently (a 1700km round trip!), we noticed in the opal fields many of the vehicles were unregistered. Not surprising as most of them were unroadworthy!
???? So, we laughed when we saw the sign: ‘’Cars with brakes give way’’. Made perfect sense in a Lightning Ridge kind of way.
???? But it got me thinking. What a perfect metaphor – if we are doing OK, we should give priority to those who aren’t.
That simply means checking in, regularly, especially if we are in #management. A simple ‘how’s things?’ is all that’s needed. You would be amazed at how much that helps their #mentalhealth, and not by coincidence, your own.
Covid19 has wreaked havoc on people’s mental health. While $$$ has been allocated for mental health responses, it is mostly aimed at recovery not prevention.
???? Wouldn’t we rather prevent the problem arising? You and I can do that by noticing when others are doing it tough and taking time to reach out to them. It lets them know we care.
You don’t have to be an expert in mental health to make a difference. Simply connecting is a precious gift for easing anxiety and loneliness.
???? Who, not what, will be your priority today?
