Did you brush your teeth today?
Did you think about it? Plan it out? Ponder it? Wring your hands about it?
Why? Because it’s a habit. Habits are things that you just do without any planning or thinking.
And good habits allow you to do valuable things every single day without spending a lot of mental energy ruminating about them.
When you’re grappling with the challenges surrounding a family member with mental health issues, you need all the energy you can get!
So focus on creating good habits!
