Taking care of my mental health is always something I take seriously. My journey in the Capital Region has been gratifying as I’ve been able to find access to a variety of different services and resources that help me stay healthy. From therapy sessions to mindfulness retreats, this beautiful city offers plenty of options for me when it comes to working on my mental health and wellbeing.
I especially love going for runs by the river and feeling connected with nature. Even though there’s lots of hustle and bustle in the city, I’m still able to find places where I can enjoy peaceful moments alone. This helps me clear my thoughts whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed and it allows me to stay focused and grounded during moments of turbulence or chaos.
I also participate in support groups around here which have offered tremendous emotional relief during times when I was struggling with certain issues or going through difficult weeks/months. Participating in group discussions, connecting with others and listening to their stories has been very beneficial for maintaining a positive outlook towards life as well as managing stress levels throughout the year.
Overall, being mindful of my healing process over the course of several years has allowed me to become more comfortable with who I am, embrace my flaws and ask questions with confidence when needed. Taking care of one’s mental health should be a priority no matter where we’re located - and I feel lucky that the Capital Region has provided me with such an array of great services which aid my journey every step of the way!
