I just had the opportunity to attend an event put on by @imaginezerosuicide and @rachelanneolsen and left with an unexplainable feeling. Imagine Zero is a coalition of professionals, agencies, and community members who meet to improve communication and coordinate services around suicide prevention. I said “YES” to attend because I wanted to learn more. ⭐️
Not only did I get to hear an amazing talk from @amandadmahoney about the importance of self care #selfcare but I also go to hear from 5 teens from the community that are out there working to help other teens that are suffering. These teens are a part of a team called 5 to Thrive @5_to_thrive. They are available to speak at high schools so if you are interested in learning more about them please DM them. They talk about their personal experiences and give tips on how one might overcome some of the things that teens are faced with today. What I found interesting is that all of the things that they suggested for teens are all the things that adults can benefit from as well in order to find their better #findyourbetter. #nutrition#service#sleep#fitness#selfcare ⭐️
As a mother, I have anxiety about my kids growing older and feeling alone. At this point in time, I will continue being the best Mom that I can be and ensure them that I will always be here for them. In order to be the best Mom that I can be, I must practice self care in order to eliminate burn-out (thank you for that reminder Amanda). As a mother, I found comfort in my heart today knowing that I am not the only one out there looking after my kids and their hearts. There are so many community members collaborating to make sure that our kids have amazing experiences as teens. There will be bumps along the way, but if and when they need help there is help out there. Please please please take a minute to check out @imaginezerosuicide , @5_to_thrive and @amandadmahoney. We are all in this life together. Help the ones you love find their better. Find Your Better with @5_to_thrive five reminders. 🍇

Not to mention the white noise app, meditation and who knows what else. And here I lie, still awake!! 😳😳😳😴😳 ... ... #insomnia#insomniac#struggle#sleep#everynight#ineedanoffswitch#medicine .... ...
