Mental Health Tools

Believe it or not, your mental health is your first line of defense to staying healthy! When stressful times occur — like they always will — it’s just as important to make sure we are feeling good emotionally as it is physically. One scientifically proven way to boost immune function is by thinking and acting optimistically. Yes! In other words, dreaming and setting life goals can be good for your health.

These activities fall into the category of Play It! Having fun and learning how to overcome obstacles. Actually, our whole website is dedicated to mental health and happiness.  These articles, games and activities are especially good for parents, teachers and healthcare workers. In fact, we think they would be educational and challenging for any adult.

I’ll explain these ideas below. And, I have a fun challenge for you that I call “the joy of fear.”
