Mind, body and spirit for positive mental health


By Letter to the Editor on March 17, 2017.

Seeing Clara Hughes and Howie Mandel finally approaching the subject of mental illness, and on such a large scale recently, was monumental for me.

When I “came out of the fog” in 2015, I wanted to spearhead. I didn’t have the confidence, nor could I string eight hours together without having to have a rest, some fresh air, nutritious food every once in a while.

I learned that this is the way we all should live. No matter who you are or where you are in life get back to the basics. Now I incorporate swimming 5-8 times a week.

With my mental health disease I have to refocus my bad addictions to healthy addictions, incorporating body, mind and spirit. Every single day.
