Mental Workout of the Day 001

Ever have those days where you can’t seem to get rid of those butterflies in your stomach? Maybe there isn’t even anything out of the ordinary going on but you can’t shake that feeling; almost like you’re forgetting something. Anxiety can sneak up on any of us at any time. Luckily, there are some things you can do to help:

  • Breathe – 10 reps, 4 count in/out
    1. Slowly count 1-2-3-4 as you inhale through your nose.
    2. Exhale for the same four-second count.
    3. As you inhale and exhale, be mindful of the feelings of fullness and emptiness in your lungs.
  • Go for a Walk – 1/2 mile
  • Phone a Friend – 5 minutes 

Why it Works

Breathing. Taking the time to breathe can help slow down your heart rate and distract your mind from whatever is leading to your anxiety. This can be done several times throughout the day to help you focus and relax. 

Walking. Psychologists studying how exercise relieves anxiety and depression suggest that a 10-minute walk may be just as good as a 45-minute workout.

Phoning a Friend. Talking to a friend or loved one is a proven way to occupy your mind and relieve symptoms of anxiety. If you’d prefer, you don’t even have to talk about what you’re feeling, just check in and chat about the day.

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.
