Wellbeing Tip of the Week
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is affecting all our lives. Many of us are struggling with how it's affecting ourselves and our loved ones. Those of us already living with mental health problems are facing extra challenges too.
However, there are some simple things that you can do to look after your mental health, either by yourself or with other people. Here is our well-being mentor’s tip of the week for looking after yourself:
Talk to others - Talk to other people about things that are bothering you and how you are feeling. Although it can be difficult at first, talking with a good friend, family member or a grown-up you trust can really help.
Talking about your feelings isn’t a sign of weakness. It’s part of taking charge of your wellbeing and doing what you can to stay healthy.
Talking can be a way to cope with a problem you’ve been carrying around in your head for a while. Just being listened to can help you feel supported and less alone. And it works both ways. If you open up, it might encourage others to do the same.
