be difficult to find the time or headspace to check in with our mood. If you’re the type of person who struggles to with holding themselves accountable, try one of these methods for integrating check-ins into your routine:
Set reminders throughout the day to quickly check in on a scale from 0 (‘not at all’) to 10 (‘extremely’) of how stressed, anxious, or down you’re feeling.
Another option is to find a buddy to check in with. Whether it’s a longer conversation once a week or hopping on a quick call to share highs and lows from the day, partnering with someone (or a small group of people) will help hold you accountable. Plus, you’ve got a built-in support system!
Repeat this practice over a span of a few weeks to get a better gauge of how you’re coping with the stress in your life. It’s normal for some days to be worse than others, but if your scores are remaining high over the course of a week or two, it’s definitely time to make your mental health a higher priority.
