There are many silent voices within our communities that are crying for help and are going unheard, are you ready to make a difference? In Canada, more than 10 people a day are dying from suicide and the majority of those individuals are boys and men (stats Can). In the face of the pandemic, many people are suffering and unfortunately, they are considering fatal options to resolve their problems. As a society, it is time that we ask ourselves some critical questions, including why is this happening?  If we are to generate viable solutions to this issue, we each must be ready, willing, and able to help. To start, it is important that we are proactively checking in with ourselves. If we don’t, we will more than likely not be in sync with our energy and state of mind. Here are some tips to help you improve your energy level and state of mind:

  • Working out consistently to keep healthy and reduce stress levels
  • During the winter months make sure to get enough vitamin D
  • Drink more water
  • Maintain a well-balanced diet
  • Incorporating personal time into your schedule 

All these different items can have a massive impact on your mood especially during trying times. As they say, if you are on a plane and there’s an emergency be sure to save yourself first so that you can save others.

Secondly, if we are going to make a difference in reducing suicide rates, we have to be more active in checking up on more people more often. From saying hi to strangers to being in closer contact with those who are in your life. We are all here to make an impact and being kind to more people will not only increase our individual vibration but the vibration around us. Making a stronger effort to communicate with others may seem like a task at first but in the long run, you will experience an awesome life reward, love. To ensure that we are doing our part to get you on your way to becoming an agent of change we would like to challenge you to take our Communication Challenge. Please do your part to share our communication challenge with as many people as possible to help build a greater sense of community and to help combat suicide attempts in our neighbors.
