20 Mental Health Quotes To Help You Get Through Tough Days
We all have days when all we feel like we have the energy for is reaching our hand out from under the covers to press snooze. Sometimes all we can do is simply survive the day and hope it gets better tomorrow.
On those days, we need a helping hand or a few kind words, but very few of us can ask for help even when we need it the most. We are here to help by providing some encouraging words that you can keep around you at all times.
These are our favorite mental health quotes that will help you through the toughest of days.
This quote reminds us that as far as we’ve come rather than how far we have still to go. It’s a great quote to remind us that we have to focus on what we have already accomplished to get to where we need to be.
In The Moment
We are constantly reminded of how we need to live in the moment, but it is so easy to get caught up in other things that we can forget to do that. We can be reminded to live in the moment by reading this quote.
The Attitude of Gratitude
Practicing gratitude for what you already have will ensure that you never feel like you need something else. Doing this will allow you to truly feel like you are where you need to be in your life.

Flowers needing rain seem like a simple enough concept, but we tend to forget that we are much like flowers. Without bad days we wouldn’t know how to appreciate the good ones, and that’s why we need to think of ourselves as flowers.
Your mind being a garden is a beautiful concept. You can think beautiful thoughts and create a lovely garden, or you can believe terrible thoughts and have an overgrown mess of a garden. However, this quote will remind us to create a beautiful garden filled with lovely flowers.
