Mental Health - Let's talk about it!
Throughout May we have been focused on your self-care with the hashtag #SelfCareIsntSelfish. We have had some great conversations with our practitioners this month during 'Peerworking' about mental health tips to help you through your most testing times... not just through isolating, social distancing and all things pandemic related.
The ethos of "Be Kind" couldn't be more relevant right now and we invite you all to read and enjoy these tips to help, starting with you...
Jo Naylor – Take a walk with a different friend every day, spill it all out, you'll feel better for it and so will they!
- Try hypnotherapy, it can be a great way to get passed something that has stopped you from chasing a certain dream or goal in the past, it allows you to focus on whatever area you need to make you feel more confident and overcome that next hurdle.
