With the start of Mental Health week comes a chance for reflection.
And as Mental Health Council of Tasmania chief executive Connie Digolis said, it has been a difficult time for many with the pandemic adding to other daily life stresses.
It is very easy to get caught up in negativity, but people need to find something they love to do which helps free their minds.
That love for me is cricket, and my wife would tell you that I probably spend too much time at the cricket club in meetings, playing, having a beer and hanging out with mates.
But it allows me to take a step back, not think about anything else and just enjoy some 'me time'.
Everyone should have that something in their lives.
So this Mental Health Week find something that you love and make the time to do it regularly. No exceptions.
Everyone could learn a thing or two from Barbara Miller, who turns 100 today.
She has lived through the Great Depression, wars, tragedies and pandemics, yet she is still smiling and finding time for the small things in life.
Happy birthday Barbara and keep smiling everyone.
Take care of each other.
