How to work through the NMH Foundations

The NMH Foundations offer specific practices that you can build into your routine now. It's divided into five categories. These categories are Sleep, Nourish (nutrition), Movement, Mind-Body, and Remedies. Within each category are guidelines and practices to support and improve your mental health.

Take it slow

Don't feel obligated to put all these practices into action right away. We suggest you start with Sleep and Nourish and implement the practices there. When you're ready, add the practices from the Movement section. Then, add the Mind-Body practices. Utilize the Remedies section at any time throughout.

Where should you start?

We find that working through the content in the order of Sleep > Nourish > Movement > Mind-Body > Remedies works for many, but it's not a perfect science. If you feel drawn to the Movement or Mind-Body practices first and want to come back to Nourish later, trust your own wisdom and motivation. Remember, this is about building a strong foundation that uniquely serves you.
