Prioritizing myself and doing more self-care

Mental Health = Health

A Q&A with Lumberjack Karringtan Bell

What do you think of when you think of mental health?

Until recently, I didn't think that anything outside of major mental health disorders really qualifies as having mental health issues.

This past year I have learned a lot about my mental health and how to keep my mind and emotions leveled.

For me, practicing good mental health is replenishing your mind with good energy.

How has your view of mental health changed since college, living through a pandemic, and being in grad school?

A time for celebration and learning

What culture(s) and/or ethnic group(s) do you identify with?

Chinese American

What does Asian-American or Pacific Islander mean to you?

Being an Asian-American Pacific Islander right now is to educate ourselves of our own history and rights. With the rise of violence against the AAPI community, we need to say no to all different forms of racism and discrimination.

As a faculty member who works directly with Asian students, my job is to protect them, make their voices be heard, and let them feel safe and happy when they are studying at NAU.

Can you share a favorite tradition from your culture(s)?

On Lunar New Year’s Eve, my families usually make dumplings together. Dumplings are pronounced as jiaozi in Chinese.

Start Your Year Off with a Dose of Positivity

A New Year — new hopes and dreams.

Get your year started off right, by starting your day out right.

Just as you fuel your body with good for you foods, fuel your brain with positive thoughts. In the process you can rewire your brain to become more positive.

“Tell yourself that this year, there isn’t going to be a single day where you don’t do something that positively feeds your mind.

Even if it’s as minuscule as reading for 10 minutes a day. Even if it’s meditating for 10 minutes every morning. Think that’s too much? …
