Your Free Printable May Calendar
Are you looking for a May calendar? Can you believe it’s almost May? My how the time flies when you’re stuck at home doing nothing. (If you’re reading this at a later date, we’re right in the middle of a world event that requires us all to stay at home).
I have to admit, I love making these calendars. I use them myself! I put them up on the fridge and we write down any important dates as well as cross off the days as we go. Of course, right now there are no important dates to remember—no classes, no birthdays, no appointments, etc. How are you holding up?
You can download the May calendar below totally free (I’m not even asking for your email!) But if you think you are living with social anxiety and would like more help with that, I’d encourage you to sign up to the resource library at the top or bottom of this page.
Each week I send out a newsletter with tips and help on how to manage social anxiety. You’ll also receive access to my resource library with lots of cool printables. Even if you’re not sure if you have social or performance anxiety, I’d love you to explore and look around!
I know some of my readers are also trying to help other people (like psychologists or relatives/friends). You’re welcome to help yourself to my free resources!
Okay, let’s have a look at May and what important mental health dates there are this month, as well as what regular holidays are coming around. It’s going to be a little different way of spending these holidays this year, but that’s okay. We can do it!
May is like mental health palooza! The whole month of May is dedicated to mental health awareness, there’s a whole week with that as the focus, and it’s also a special date in the UK for moms.
- May 4-10 – Mental Health Week
- May 4-10 – UK Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week
- May 7 – National Children’s Mental Health
- May 10 – Mother’s Day
- All month – Mental Health Awareness Month
Other May Dates
Here in Canada we have what we call “May 2-4 weekend” also known as Victoria Day. In the US the equivalent holiday is Memorial Day. Whichever way you slice it, this is a weekend when most people plan parties or get togethers so it’s going to be difficult this year for sure. It’s also better sleep month, and I don’t know about you but I could always use better sleep.
- All month – Better Sleep Month
- May 25 – Memorial Day (U.S.) / Victoria Day (Canada)
Mental Health Awareness
I don’t know about you but my mental health could use a boost! This is the perfect month to do something for your mental health. That could mean practicing daily meditation, purchasing a self-help workbook, or even signing up for online therapy through a service like Betterhelp.
Are you struggling to get regular sleep right now? If so, take some time to review your sleep habits and make sure that you are turning off electronics at a reasonable hour as well as setting your alarm to keep to something of a schedule.
Memorial Day/Victoria Day
Oh gosh it’s going to be a hard May long weekend here in Canada and I’m sure it will be the same for you where ever you are. Even if you don’t celebrate the long weekend, with the weather starting to get nice, it’s natural to want to get outdoors and do things. I’d say clean off your patio furniture if you have any and place it on your front porch or driveway (or patio or balcony): wherever you can get a view of passersby. Have a little May long weekend party out on your front lawn if you need to feel connected. Or if you usually let this weekend pass you by, then you’ll be fine.
That’s it for May! I hope this calendar keeps you on track and that you can use it to mark down any important dates for the month. If there are any other printables that you’d like me to create feel free to leave me a comment below!
