THE WELLNESS TUNE UP!
“Good mental health isn’t a destination, it’s the way you travel. The quality of your life, health, work, and relationships is determined by the quality of your mental health…not the other way around.”
The purpose of this presentation/training is to teach critical concepts related to traffic safety while connecting the same concepts to the importance of mental health. It will reinforce simple strategies to balance and align your mind and keep you safe behind the wheel. This presentation will challenge young people to become safer drivers by promoting positive mental health strategies
Although these skills seem simple, they have proven elusive to young and old alike, both behind the wheel of a vehicle and in life.
THESE CONCEPTS INCLUDE
There is no safe driving of an unsafe vehicle.
Distracted driving is a symptom of distracted living
The first step of any safe journey is to determine where you are going and how you want to get there
Your attitude will impact your view of the world
Recognize and adapt to hazardous conditions
There is a difference between balance and control
Become an "Uber" human by giving others a "Lyft"
Strength in numbers. Using the carpool lane is a faster way to get where you need to go
Ask for directions, but remember who you ask can make all the difference
The closer we can live in alignment with our values, guided by our goals, and motivated by passions, the smoother our ride will be. Our cars and lives come equipped with "check engine" indicators. We may not always predict the traffic jams and obstacles we will come across, but we can decide how we will respond to them even before they arise. Our vehicle's health and our mental health are determined by how we respond when maintenance is required.
