Mental Health Awareness
Shining a light on Mental Health Awareness week, which takes place on 10-16th May, 2021. I wanted to share with you 5 areas where I nourish my own mental health and hope they resonate. You can also download this information as a handy infographic and share it amongst your friends, family & colleagues.
Mindfulness (Consider daily morning sessions)
Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing.
Deep Breathing (Consider meditation)
Shallow breathing can cause anxiety symptoms. Take time out of your day to clear your mind and concentrate on your breath.
Self Care (Exercise & nutrition)
Going out for a daily walk and eating a healthy, balanced diet can give you the best foundation in good mental health.
Passion Project (Personal time)
From enjoying your favourite hobby, learning something new or simply taking time to relax, it’s important to do things that make you happy.
Support Network (Social connection)
Developing your support network and asking for help when you need it is most critical for good mental health. Spend quality time with family and friends online, by phone or seeing someone in person.
