When taking a mental health day, it’s much easier to put it off then it is to actually plan it.
Setting up some kind of schedule for things like mental health is one of the hardest things for anyone to do, let alone stick to it.
In an article by Verywellmind, they lay out the basics on how to plan these kinds of days, and what to do when they arrive. They suggest many relaxing things, like attempting yoga, watching tv, and other mindless things. There is no one way to do a mental health day, but doing things you enjoy that don’t stress you out are all that matters.
Only you know what your body needs. So putting aside time to destress is super important for everyone to do.
