It’s not always apparent why we do the things we do. Sometimes our decisions are out of habit, out of fear or pure comfort. We take the same road home after work, for example, or eat at the same restaurant every week. There are these innocuous decisions we make and then there ones that are much more damaging.
We may snap at a loved one over something trivial or stay with the same partner, doctor or friend for years even though we know that doing so is not good for us.
While deciding to do the same workout or eat the same cereal will hardly hurt us, being aware of why we make other decisions that do is integral to our physical and mental health.
This week our bloggers are shaking things up by calling attention to issues we may otherwise accept without question. Whether it’s being conscious of our options for mental health treatment, how we treat our children, why we feel self-conscious crying in front of others, or spreading truth not stigma, these posts address important issues of awareness. It may be perfectly fine if we choose to laugh off a joke on mental illness or take antidepressants, but the key is knowing why you’re doing it.
If you are clear about your own beliefs and intentions and guard yourself with accurate information, you’ll be better able to make the right decision for you.
