#WorldMentalHealthDay2019 why not try this simple exercise? Writing briefly about one thing you can taste, touch, see, hear and feel. Thanks Jacqui Smith. #WMHD2019 #wordforwellbeing
#WMHD2019 Christina Christou recommends the following: 'So start with writing how you feel, unedited for 5-6 mins. Really let it all out. If you feel you need to let it go just rip it up, throw it away.' #WorldMentalHealthDay2019
5. Richard Axtell, our coordinator, suggests checking out the app SuperBetter -it's a combination of two of his favourite things to help manage and support Mental Health (among other things) - writing and gaming!
6.Here's a great exercise from Michael Loveday. Write out a dialogue between "parts" of yourself e.g. a younger and older version of you, or write an exchange between left hand and right hand (whichever is the less dominant hand voices the "vulnerable" part of you) #WMHD2019
7. If you want to cultivate a more grateful approach, Clare Stevens recommends listing 20 (!) good things that have happened each day.
