Mental health days

When I was a kid my mum used to give me ‘mental health days’ because I never got unwell as much as my brother and sister. It was basically an excuse for a day off school, and it’s probably because I felt jealous (and let it show) that I had to go to school but they didn’t.

In any case, taking time off for yourself is so important every once in a while. It doesn’t have to be a whole day, even just an extended lunch would do at times, but making a conscious effort to give yourself permission to do nothing helps to maintain your freshness and productivity overall.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
