A church leader once said, ‘Don’t be taken by surprise for your enemy lurks around seeking someone to devour, resist him” In other words, don’t get blindsided when you come under attack. Keep alert!

We need to protect our mental health and well-being. It is so easy to be suddenly hit by fears and doubts that push you under or over. Stay alert, keep watching for those things that threaten your well-being. Take positive action. There is a need for constant vigilance when it comes to your mental health and well-being.

We can never fully know what the next day may bring. We may have a clear idea of what is in the diary, but we can never know how things will affect us. For instance, I may have a meeting booked with a friend or an associate, and I may be looking forward to it, but, I cannot know how things will materialize, what will be said or not said and I may not know how I will react, or how I might feel at any moment. So, keep alert and look for those things, situations, people or events that might be loaded with potential danger to your mental health.

We can often discern the kind of people and situations that we should avoid because we know they will have a negative impact on our mental health. Taking measures to avoid conflict or potential stress is often a wise move.

I have found it helpful to identify those triggers that might affect my mental well being. Triggers are things, people, events, or situations that might take you down a road you know will cause your emotional and mental health to take a nose-dive. In particular, I have found Christian Mindfulness a great tool in promoting good mental health.
