Week of Self-Kindness with Mind

Week of Self-Kindness with Mind

Mind in Salford have put together a Week of Self-Kindness as part of Mental Health Awareness Week, this week. Today’s activity is all about how we can connect to the people we care about to start a conversation about mental health, even when we may not be able to see them face-to-face. Talking about mental health can sometimes seem daunting; how do we bring it up? What if they don’t want to talk about it? What if we say the wrong thing? The more we have conversations about mental health, the more normal and comfortable these chats become, and they...

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING WHILE SELF-ISOLATING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR MENTAL WELLBEING WHILE SELF-ISOLATING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING

1. Routine is your new BFF💘   Try and stick to your usual routine and working hours. If you’re a morning gym-goer, why not try and maintain working out in the morning?

Your bed is for snoozing (and Netflix binging)💤   We all love our bed but we’d recommend keeping it for sleeping and relaxing. Not separating your sleeping and...

How To Work From Home Effectively

This might be true (we can wear joggers when we’re working from home!), but it’s essential we focus on our work and still get it all done so we can chill out at the end of each day, knowing we’ve done our best job. To help through this time,...
