Thursday, January 28, was the 11th annual Bell Let’s Talk Day. This is a day for Canadians to join the global mental health conversation, reduce the stigma around this extremely prevalent and pressing issue, and raise funds to support Canadian mental health programs.
With the growing need for quality, accessible mental wellness services, Bell is stressing that “every action counts” and is giving each Canadian the opportunity to add their voice to a very important discussion and create positive changes.
For each text, local or long-distance call, tweet, or TikTok video using #BellLets Talk, Bell donated 5 cents to Canadian mental health programs. They also donated 5 cents for every Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, and YouTube view of the Bell Let's Talk Day video, and every use of the Bell Let's Talk Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.
In this way, Bell says this year's Let's Talk Day generated over 159 million messages, 42 million interactions on social media, and over seven million dollars for mental health. Wow!
Since this is such an important issue for so many Canadians, Jem would also like to help. In addition to the numerous products and services we offer to assist each person on their own unique well-being journey, the following are ideas specifically designed to aid you during challenging times and help you remember your magnificence and wholeness.
Online Yoga Classes with Carly Deslippe
Yoga & Wellness with Carly offers online (zoom) yoga classes, meditation, and holistic services, such as Reiki and Tarot Readings with Jem’s very own Carly Deslippe. She offers yoga classes in a variety of styles with different level and time options. Carly also offers private and small group yoga sessions. Whether you’re new to yoga or someone who wants to deepen their practice, Carly has a class for you.
Carly is a dedicated yoga student and teacher, reflexologist, and master Reiki practitioner. In her classes and holistic services, Carly aims to “help her clients come closer to a place within themselves where they can experience and embody peace and love. She believes that these healing modalities can be a catalyst for humans to connect to their higher selves, to one another, to the Earth and to the Universe.”
If this intention aligns with you, check out her website today and sign up for one of her yoga classes. Your body, mind, and spirit will thank you.
Are you open to experiencing positive changes in your life? Would you like more happiness and confidence, increased creativity, improved focus, and the ability to make decisions more quickly? Or perhaps you would like a tool to help you overcome negative habits and improve your overall health and wellness.
MyndMethod is an app that provides “meditation-on-the-move” LifeTracks, a “synergistic blend of voice and music designed to help you eliminate negative self-talk, explore beyond your current situation and move you from where you are to where you want to be.”
One of the great things about MyndMethod LifeTracks is that you don’t need to set aside large blocks of time for the traditional solitary, silent meditation. Instead, you can listen to them throughout your day as you go about your regular schedule, while getting the kids ready for school, preparing a meal, exercising, relaxing, etc. No meditation cushion required – unless you want to use one!
The many possible benefits listed above can show up in your life through listening to your LifeTracks on a regular basis. It’s important to stress that constant repetition is vital to making changes. Research has shown that “listening to a voice recording of your intentions, combined with specific music soundtracks, can improve the time it takes to change a habit.” In other words, MyndMethod LifeTracks have the potential to help you make positive changes in your life more quickly than visualizations or affirmations on their own.
Since simply repeating new ideas a few times is not enough, we need to affect change in the realm of our extremely powerful subconscious mind, the part of the mind that controls our life more than we realize.
MyndMethod can help change the subconscious beliefs and thought patterns that are holding you back and help you focus on what you do want to create. “The MyndMethod guides your thinking to continue in the direction of your dreams and desires. The more often you listen, the more you can create new thought patterns and pathways in your mind."
Check out the MyndMethod website to subscribe today and receive unlimited access to all LifeTracks in all categories for as low as $9.99 per month!
Finally, since each person’s well-being journey is unique, Jem is thrilled to provide you with innovative ideas to help you continue to return to your innate wholeness. Online yoga with Carly and the Mynd Method app are just two of the ways you can truly care for your body, mind, and spirit through beautiful movement, mindfulness, and stillness.
As always, Jem is committed to providing you with high-quality products, such as Lake & Oak Tea to help you relax and rejuvenate, Nocturne to help you sleep, Halcyon to hydrate your beautiful skin, and Essential Oil Mists to brighten your day. And when we reopen after lockdown, we are excited to continue to provide you with incredible spa services that bring relaxation, self-care, and much-needed moments to help you connect to your inner being.
Stay tuned for Part II in our Mental Wellness and Self-Care Series, focusing on BodyTalk, the extraordinary approach to balancing your body-mind, expanding your consciousness, and restoring your body to its natural state of wholeness.
