Ask our pharmacists how they can help on your journey to wellness.

Wellness involves all aspects of your life beyond your physical health. This includes physical, emotional, spiritual, social, occupational, intellectual, environmental, and financial health. Wellness is not only being free of disease, illness, or stress but also having a purpose in life, being emotionally healthy, taking an active involvement in your work and in your leisure time, having joyful relationships and being happy. Any disruptions to any of the 8 wellness dimensions can impact your day-to-day life.

From medication management to disease screening, addictions care and resource and service navigation, Mint pharmacists can have an important role in supporting your mental health and wellness. We are here to guide you no matter where you are in your journey to wellness.

To enjoy fulfilled and happy lives, it is important to take care of your well-being and invest time in your wellness. Sometimes taking a moment to chat, breathe or feel listened to can have the greatest impact. Visit your local Mint pharmacy and take a MoMint for your well-being.

Take a MoMint to Manage Your Stress

Stress can impact us in many different ways. Sometimes stress can be good and can lead to increased productivity. However, prolonged increased amounts of stress can lead to an increase in cortisol levels in our body which can be detrimental to our physical and mental health. Our Mint pharmacists are here to listen and can recommend tips to reduce and manage your stress.

Take a MoMint to Deep Breathe

When we’re stressed and overwhelmed, the way we breathe in oxygen actually changes and becomes much more shallow, fast and irregular. Most people don’t even notice this as it happens so subconsciously as a survival instinct as our body prepares itself to fight, flight, or freeze from whatever is causing us stress. Try the hand mountain breathing exercise below until you feel relaxed.
