10/10/20 Take 10 minutes on the 10th of the 10th to look after yourself and others.
Today is World Mental Health Day and a day when we should take a moment to reflect on our own mental health as well as those of our loved ones, friends and colleagues.
It continues to be a difficult time for lots of people in many different ways, whether it be that they are too frightened to leave their house, are worried about passing on the virus to family members and friends, or whether they can just not see an end to the pandemic.
By taking the time to talk and having a virtual cuppa, it can result in an improvement in not only your own mental health, but with those that you speak to, so set aside some time today and have that much needed catch up.
There is a vast amount of support available to people who are struggling with their mental health, but taking the first steps can be hard. If you feel that you are not your ‘usual self’, or see that someone else is displaying signs, then take a moment to reflect on the questions below. These questions will help to identify what the stressors are, thoughts/feelings that you may be having and how steps can be taken to manage the situation and improve your mental health.
It is imperative for mental health to keep talking and seek the support you need when you need it.
