Elevate Your Rituals for Better Mental Health

The first skiff of snow is on the ground and greedy birds are vying for position at the bird feeders outside my window.

The morning coffee ritual has begun and the smell wafts through the air signaling morning has arrived even if the sun isn’t quite ready to make herself known.  My youngest has overslept for school and is scrambling to consume a bowl of cereal and find the perfect sweatshirt, her hair in a messy bun that looks effortlessly beautiful on her somehow.  The dogs have eaten their fill for breakfast—I hear them lapping up water and sighing with satisfaction as they plop down to take a morning nap having already been outside exploring in the snow.  Someone in the house is already on their first ZOOM meeting call for the day and you can hear the usual banter about who still needs to arrive on the call and who is struggling with technology.

It’s a pretty typical morning during the pandemic.

Throughout the course of this year, I’ve had to find ways to establish rituals for myself and my family that create feelings of safety and security for all of us—home as a haven from what rages outside.  This has been the key to making it through the pandemic without losing our minds.  Dinner is eaten together, as a family, at approximately the same time each night.  We play high/low—tell me the best thing from your day and the worst thing from your day.  This game helps us stay in touch with one another and with what is important.  I’ve paid more attention to getting and keeping the house in order so that every room feels welcoming and ready for whomever wants to lounge there.  We make sure masks are clean and ready and soap dispensers are perpetually full.  We encourage daily exercise.  Right now it’s fun to get out and walk to see holiday lights.

Creating a safe place for yourself and your family to let go of the stress and pressure of living in a pandemic riddled world is key to maintaining good mental health.  Rituals as simple as dinner and bedtime at the same time, reading books for 30 minutes before bed, scheduling a game night or making special treats for snacks all provide a sense of reliability, predictability, safety and love.

Now that we are officially in the holiday season, be intentional about your rituals and traditions.  Elevate them this year so you and your entire family benefit from the healthy feelings they bestow

Team of professionals at Radiant Health

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

As of January 18, 2023, Grant Blackford Mental Health and Family Services Society, two organizations that merged in April 2022, rebranded under the unified name Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
