Bringing you the best of mental health every week.
Just as long as you don’t put too much on your plate, one of the best things you can do for yourself is to try something new. That’s something that can help with depression, anxiety, fighting with your partner, recovery from addiction, as well as garden variety loneliness, pointlessness, and despair.
One thing I like to do as I drive around, is, when I see something new, like a sign for bingo, for instance, or an owl prowl or hot yoga, I jot it down in a notebook so I can remember it for later. You can do that, too. I recommend one new thing every week if you can manage it. If you want to save gas, you can go on the Eventbrite website. This is a website where people announce all kinds of events, everything from a lecture on the paid family leave law, to silent disco, to the 5th Annual Rochester Salsa Cruise. I think Eventbrite works better than driving around, since most people just drive around in the same places and never see anything new, anyway.
By the way, if you have an event you want the public to attend, you can easily announce it there.
