Creating S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Creating S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Sometimes we set goals for ourselves that are unattainable. They don’t seem hard at first, but then we struggle to figure out where to start, or run into obstacles and become discouraged. If you are struggling with problems that are hard to fix, or goals that feel overwhelming or difficult to map out, try making S.M.A.R.T. goals - Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Bound.  Learn more about setting S.M.A.R.T. goals in the Behavioral Health Partners’ January blog post.  Behavioral Health Partners is part of Well-U, offering eligible individuals mental health services for stress, anxiety, and depression.

Grief and the Holidays

Grieving is difficult at any time, but it can be especially challenging during the holiday season. Holidays represent time spent with loved ones, so they tend to magnify our loss. Making sure you have a plan and a support system in place can help you better prepare for any emotions or experiences you may have during the holidays. Behavioral Health Partners is part of Well-U, offering eligible individuals mental health services for stress, anxiety, and depression.

Managing Anxiety in the Wake of Tragedy

Managing Anxiety in the Wake of Tragedy

Some experts worry that our non-stop exposure to tragedy in the news is taking its toll by causing undue, elevated anxiety for many of us. It is suggested that we can benefit by being more selective in how much information we allow ourselves to access. Though it is important to stay informed about the events of the world, it’s also just as important to know how to care for ourselves when it comes to things that provoke anxiety or pain, even when we are not directly affected.

Emotions – Why do we have them?

Emotions – Why do we have them?

Emotions are an essential function of communication that allow others to know what is happening to you and help build connections in relationships. Just as important is the information emotions can give you to guide your own decision-making. Like happiness for instance, which lets you know that something is going well and motivates you to recreate the experience in the future.
