It's Mental Health Awareness Week and it couldn't come at a more important time as we adjust to our lives in lock down. Protecting our mental health is essential to us coping with the pandemic. The focus this week is on the power and potential of kindness. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. But it's not just about being kinder to others, it's also important to be kind to yourself. So here are 3 ways you can be kind to yourself today: 1. Carve Out Some Time For Yourself
Do something that you enjoy whether it's exercise, reading, drawing, journaling, listening to music, dancing, chatting to a friend or even just some deep breathing. Be kind to yourself by giving yourself daily “me time”. 2. Praise yourself
We're often quick to recognise others achievements but how often do we give ourselves a pat on the back? When you do something you're proud of, however small, congratulate yourself. This could be something as simple as getting through a difficult day.
3. Take Good Care of Yourself
Prioritise sleep, eat plenty of vegetables and fruit, focus on natural wholefoods, ensure you get your daily exercise. Look after yourself and you will feel happier and feel better for it. Finally, why not reflect on one of your acts of kindness and share it with others? You might just inspire someone to do the same.
