  • It is important to care for your mental health, just like you would any other physical condition.

  • One of the best things you can do for your mental health is to be physically active.

  • Engaging in regular physical activity can boost energy levels, relieve tension and stress

  • and promote an overall sense of wellbeing.

  • The 2018 Physical Activity guidelines recommend aiming for at least 150 minutes of physical

  • activity each week.

  • That may seem like a big number, but remember, any movement counts, even just a few minutes!

  • Physical activity can be anything from walking and hiking, to yoga, to gardening, or playing

  • a sport.

  • Whatever helps you feel good!

  • The body and mind are closely connected, so when your body feels better, it is likely

  • that your mind will too!

  • Need additional help?

  • The Strive Employee Life & Family program through ComPsych offers confidential counseling,

  • referrals and much more.

  • This program is available to all active state employees eligible for MCHCP medical coverage

  • and members of their household.

  • Contact MCHCP Member Services at 800-487-0771

  • for instruction on how to access SELF program services.
