I have to make a wellness plan

My assignment from my mental health worker. I have no clue how to do that. Any helpful hints?

I dunno.

Same bedtime routine.

Eat 3 squares per day

A little exercise

Get small tasks done (ie; don’t procrastinate)

These are just a few off the top of my nut.

I would make it realistic

and something you can stick with

wellness seems different for everybody

do you feel like you’re already high functioning?

Fairly high functioning I’d say

You might want to include what to do in a difficult time, who to reach out to in a crisis .

Also perhaps…

Keeping a short daily journal.

Of your good moments and not so good times…to try and see what areas you can improve on in your day-to-day goings on.

What you would like to happen to you in the event of you becoming unwell, and who you would like to be notified.

Take the time to treat yourself once in a while.

Be it your favorite ice cream cone…a new article of clothing…a decorative piece for the house…etc.

I have three separate plans. A green, yellow, and red. The green plan is for what I can do on my good days. Yellow plan is an easier plan for when I’m struggling a bit. Red is for when I can barely even get out of bed.

I’d hate to ask what the ‘plaid card’ is for! :wink:

That’s an excellent system @ninjastar . I would much appreciate it if you could post it in whole or in part. We might all learn something

That’s similar to mine, but I should probably add a yellow plan, I shouldn’t be as binary about it.

Good day plan has chore times and lists, proper time for self care, eating schedules, pill schedules, even if it’s just a shower and clean clothes.

Bad day plan involves interventions, maybe a PRN, nap, calm in any way I can, implement some tools. Lots of reality checking. Ride the wave.

Sooo…to recap from contributions to this thread…

Same bedtime routine.

Eat 3 squares per day

A little exercise

Get small tasks done (ie; don’t procrastinate)

Set realistic goals

Who to contact in a crisis

Keeping a daily journal

Embracing your hobbies

Spoiling yourself once and a while

Planning your day appropriately based on how well you are feeling

I would also add something to get out of the house for fun, besides exercise.

Good example would be going to the Movie Theater on a quiet day, take a walk in the park, drink a nice coffee at a local coffee shop etc.
