World Mental Health Day is October 10

World Mental Health Day is recognized on October 10, and each year, the World Health Organization focuses on a theme for global mental health. Other organizations, like NAMI, also raise awareness of mental health issues and help fight stigma. Crestwood is proud to sponsor and participate in the NAMIWalks United Day of Hope in Kern County on October 7.

Mindfulness Meditation: Autumn Reflection

Picture yourself at a lake in Autumn. You look down at the deep blue water and see dozens of trees reflected on the smooth surface. Towering pine giants, golden aspens at the peak of fall color, red-orange maples sprinkled throughout. There are clouds too, billowy and white. As you ponder this beautiful watery reflection, you think upon the fall season and all it can symbolize. Shifting seasons are a time for pause, reflection, planning, and transformation.

  • Pause: As the busyness of a new season starts, make time to relax and recharge. As the saying goes, you cannot pour from an empty cup.
  • Reflect: Think back on the last season. Review your successes and setbacks, your challenges and your accomplishments. See how far you’ve come in the past few months.
  • Plan: Taking some intentional time to map out your goals for this season can help them come to fruition. Plan for times of rest, time with family and friends, time for hobbies and the things you enjoy.
  • Transform: How do you see yourself transforming this fall season? Is there a new skill you’d like to hone? Do you want to read a good book? How about picking up that hobby you’ve forgotten for a while? Or revisiting that resolution you made in January? Growth and transformation take place when we’re intentional and consistent. And like the beauty of the autumn leaves, transformation can be a wonderful thing!
