Mental Health with the Best Tacos in Chattanooga, TN

How are you holding up? Are you taking care of yourself? Drinking plenty of fluids? It’s a crazy world out there, so be sure to take care of yourself. We love tacos at Amigo, and we also love you! Lots of people do. Actually, tacos can teach us a lot about personal well-being. This month we would like to highlight how the best tacos in Chattanooga, TN can help teach us about mental health.

1. It’s okay to fall apart. 

What happens to tacos when they fall apart? We pick up the pieces. Granted, after picking them up we smoosh them into our mouths but don’t think about that part. It’s just like the butler said in that popular superhero movie, “And why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.”

2. Fillings (feelings) are important.

“You are an empty shell of a person.” Did you know that this phrase refers to taco shells specifically? Imagine someone handing you a taco shell and pretending it’s a complete taco. Fillings make tacos whole, and your feelings (both good and bad) make you whole too.

3. Got beef? Taco ‘bout it.

Don’t stew in your beef like a beef stew. Taco ‘bout it. Your feelings are valid and they aren’t going anywhere. If the problem is with a person, then taco ‘bout it with them! Spill the beans and have a conversation (perhaps while enjoying the best tacos in Chattanooga, TN only at Amigo Mexican Restaurant). You’ll be glad you did!

4. Even the best of us sometimes get a bad wrap.

We all make mistakes, and we all get upset. If something real or contrived has caused you to get a bad wrap, remember that all tacos are temporary. Every five seconds a new taco is made and every 7 to 10 years your body’s cells are replaced by new ones. Life and tacos are in a constant state of reinvention. The you that you are today is just the taco of the day. There’ll be a new one tomorrow.

5. You are spec-taco-ular just for being you.

The most important thing tacos can teach us? You are worthy of love just by being you. Tacos don’t work hard or get advanced degrees or throw money around. The world loves tacos for just being tacos. You, my amigo, are a taco. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone, you have been one of a kind since the moment you were born. 

Thank you for being you, and we hope you’ll come by sometime to enjoy the best tacos in Chattanooga, TN at Amigo Mexican Restaurant.
