The national lockdowns have been difficult for many of us and now that restrictions are easing, there are new challenges to consider.
For Mental Health Awareness Week, Every Mind Matters have updated their resources accordingly to help aid conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it.
There are things we can all do to look after our mental wellbeing and the Every Mind Matters Mind Plan can provide NHS approved personalised advice on positive steps you can take.
Every Mind Matters can also provide:
- Top tips for anxiety about lockdown lifting
- Advice regarding coping with money worries
- Working from home tips
- Tips for how to fall asleep faster and sleep better
- Coping with loneliness
You may also find the Every Mind Matters content on NHS.uk valuable as it covers tips and advice on dealing with anxiety, low mood, stress, sleep, as well as updated advice on coronavirus for parents, children and young people.
The Mental Health Foundation are asking for help to get the nation talking about nature and mental health. Take a moment to celebrate nature in your daily life. Take a photo, video or sound recording and share the connections you’ve made using the hashtag #ConnectWithNature.
