We answered an appeal from Hoke County to assist with emergency supplies to the residents of the county. We supplied baby wipes, hand sanitizers, cleaning materials, diapers, masks and gloves, and so forth.

Signs You Need to Take a Mental Health Day
June 9, 2020
When your body and emotions are out of whack, it’s important to recognize the signs that your overworked brain needs a mental health day. If you get the flu or an injury, you have no problem taking a sick day. But what if your mental health is suffering? Just like your physical health, it's important to take time off to focus on your mental well-being.
The day-to-day hustle and commitments of life can cause high levels of stress, which ultimately affect your mental state. It's hard to spot the symptoms because they're not all physical. Here are some signs you need a mental health day, plus a few things you can do to try to heal.
You’re Exhausted All the Time
Everyone gets tired once in a while, but if you don't even have the energy to do simple tasks or your favorite activities, then you may need to take a mental health day. People can feel drained physically, mentally, socially, creatively, emotionally and spiritually.
Many people turn to caffeine when they feel tired. Sometimes, people knock back multiple cups of coffee to power through the day. However, relying on coffee won't help if you're exhausted and unmotivated. In fact, drinking too much coffee leads to dehydration, which slows you down.
Instead of coffee, try using a mental health day to have some fun and restore your energy. You could also take the day to identify the things that are draining you, such as a stressful commute or a messy home. After creating a list of your stressors, figure out how to eliminate them.
You’re Tired, but You Have Trouble Sleeping
After a long day at work, you may feel tired. However, what if you can't fall asleep when you go to bed, even when you’re exhausted? High levels of stress can lead to insomnia, which causes fatigue, poor focus, physical pain and even more stress. Work, financial or relationship problems can create stress.
It's basically a never-ending cycle until you reduce or get rid of the stressors. With a mental health day, you can sleep in, take a long nap or start setting a healthier sleep schedule for your mind and body. Experts have found that getting regular, good sleep helps people heal and recharge.
It’s Hard to Focus
Are you struggling to concentrate, making mistakes or forgetting things more than usual? If the answer is yes, you may be under a lot of stress. "The basic idea is that the brain is shunting its resources because it's in survival mode, not memory mode," explains Dr. Kerry Ressler, chief scientific officer at McLean Hospital and professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.
