World Mental Health Day
Maybe the pandemic has allowed you to stop and reflect, maybe the death of Caroline Flack sparked an emotion or maybe, due to better awareness, we are just starting to become much more in tune with our own mental wellbeing. Today marks World Mental Health Day 2020 with the theme being “mental health for all”. Sometimes our biggest critic is ourselves, and in the fast paced, ever changing world we live in, it is more important now than ever to take time out, reflect and be kind to our soul.
“Give yourself a break. Stop beating yourself up! Everyone makes mistakes, has setbacks and failures. You don’t come with a book on how to get it right all the time. You will fail sometimes, not because you planned to, but simply because you’re human. Failure is a part of creating a great life.” Les Brown
Whether your vice is music, meditation, exercise or Hinching a cupboard, paying more attention to your thoughts and feelings in the present moment helps see things through clearer paths. Check out these simple 5 steps to mental wellbeing as suggested by the NHS
Mental Health should no longer be a taboo topic, but one that employers, educational establishments and in fact all organisations put at the forefront of their business development. After all, a happy environment is much more likely to thrive. The Mental Health Organisation have published a great guide explaining How to Support Mental Health at Work. Here at Pure Resourcing, we take time out of our day to debrief, to exercise and to raise the serotonin levels with some good ol’ belly laughter. The ethos of no I in Team really does adhere here; we work collaboratively and bring out the best in everyone.
“You don’t have to be positive all the time. It’s perfectly okay to feel sad, angry, annoyed, frustrated, scared and anxious. Having feelings doesn’t make you a negative person. It makes you human.” Lori DescheneBack to all posts
