Having a sense of purpose in life and being intentional is really important for our mental health.
So Adrian Munro, CEO of Richmond Wellbeing, joined Mike to continue their discussion about having a sense of purpose. A lot of us have spent time at home due to sickness or taking care of family. But the isolation and lack of social connection may have left some of us not quite feeling right. “What you’re experiencing is totally to be expected because human beings are social. We’ve had a very extended period of time and we’re more vulnerable to having a really significant impact from being socially isolated.”
Having meaningful relationships can be a great protective mechanism for your mental health. If you feel like your social circle has diminished it’s important to be intentional about rebuilding those relationships. “How am I purposeful about building time with my kids? Rather than just leaving it to chance.”
