It’s week four of Mental Health Month, Tumblr! We hope you’ve enjoyed the post prompts and all of the wonderful works of love that they generated. The month may be ending, but that doesn’t mean that sharing your stories and spreading awareness for mental health has to end, too. That’s why this week is all about posting it for the future 👉
- Post a photo or GIF of yourself with a positive message that you can look back on anytime you need. Toss a Mental Health Month sticker on it.
- Make a list of things you can do to make life better for future you.
- Write a chat post between the person you are now and the person you would like to become.
- Write down one thing you like about yourself and schedule it to be published on your Tumblr one month from now.
- The future starts…now. Share one thing you plan to cross off your to-do list today, and then do it!
- Make a list of things you’re looking forward to in the future.
- The Ultimate Positivity Post. Fill it up with everything that makes you happy. Reblog it whenever you’re feeling down.
Do one of them. Do all of them. Do none of them and instead make up your own methods of bringing awareness to the importance of mental health. Whatever you do, just tag it with #postitforward so others can see your post as part of the bigger message.
Keep looking out for each other, Tumblr.
