Bell “Lets Talk Day” was last week ….
“Growing the global conversation and supporting Canada’s mental health”
“The impact of each interaction on Bell Let’s Talk Day has been felt across the nation. Thank you to all those who continue to speak up about mental illness. Let’s keep the conversation going and work together to create a stigma-free Canada.”
There is no doubt that this day set aside for mental health has a fantastic impact on our communities!!
Small action. Big impact.
Total number of interactions
That’s HUGE!! ….but I can’t help but feel a week later that the conversation needs to keep happening …and more than that we need to become better LISTENERS. We have become so distracted by our “Smart Phones” and instant gratification of media we don’t listen to the people around us ….or even to ourselves anymore. Yes …Listen to yourself. Take some time just to THINK …even daydream and then listen to yourself. Often times when you let your mind go …the answers we search are right there. If you are in a good place you are going to be in a better place to listen to others. I think if we make an effort to start there we can get more than we ever dreamed from life.
Bell can have “Lets Talk Day” but lets LISTEN every day!
