World Mental Health Day October 10th 2020

In those moments when it feels like a lot is going on in our head, talking to someone we can trust can help us untie all the knots and see clearly how we feel and what is really going on.

Talking to someone helps you to look at things in a different way and to find solutions. Have a cup of tea with someone who cares for you or give them a call. Let them know you are not okay.

Talking things out can help lessen worry and reassure you that there is a better or different way forward.

You don't have to appear to be strong or to try to struggle through things by yourself.

Sometimes, you may expect that those close to you should know you aren't feeling good. You might feel that they should notice what you're going through. But, they may not have noticed or they might be waiting for you to ask, not wanting to interfere.

If you communicate your feelings to them, people are often willing to help out a friend in need. Your friends or family will be glad you asked. Often, they will feel privileged that you asked them in the first place. It might also help the people you care about. If you open up about your feelings, they might do the same.

It is ok not to be ok. You cannot pour from an empty cup.

World Mental Health Day was October 10th and it is a great reminder of how important is to look after our #wellbeing and #mentalwellness. Not only this day but also every day of the year.

It was a pleasure for Sara to share her passion for chair yoga and meditation with @virginmediatelevision_ employees by helping them with tools that they can use in those moments when they most need them. Online seated yoga combined with coaching is a great way to not only work on the body but also the mind.
