Every day is time for supporting our mental health, but this year families everywhere are in need of extra hope, support, endurance, and moments of calm. This May, during Mental Health Awareness Month, we hope you’ll accept our meditation challenge. As parents, grandparents, teachers, community workers, and other caring adults, it’s important to take care of your own emotional health, as the first step in supporting the young people in your life.

We were inspired last month by a parent who shared that, during these challenging times, they had meditated for 65 days in a row! We want to pass on this inspiration. Set a monthly goal that works for you — 10 minutes a day, an hour a day, a couple hours a week — then use our May Meditation Calendar to stay motivated. Do it yourself, or include your whole family.
