Mind - Let's have a cup of tea

September 18, 2017

Don't like tea?  That's fine, I have coffee too. 

 

A couple of weeks ago I posted something called Creating a happier, healthier me in which I spoke about ways to create a healthier and happier version of myself.  One of these things I posted about was talking to other people about how you are feeling.  This could be friends, family, colleauges, even your GP.  

 

Mental Health is still quite a taboo subject yet roughly 1 in 4 people will experience mental health problems each year in the UK.  I have personal experience with mental health problems in various ways.  It can be so hard for an individual to open up and explain everything that is going on in their head.

 

I find that when I'm down, I have cuddles with Weasley or Nicky and I'm happy.  If Nicky is at work and Weasley isn't interested (you know what cats are like) then I text a friend, or go and see my mum.  Some people find this harder.  They might not have close friends and family around them to talk to, I consider myself extremely lucky to have this support around me.

 

If you are struggling, there are lots of online resources you can access for free - my favourite one is Mind.  Mind is a mental health charity with lots of online support, tips on every day living amongst so many other things.  Why not have a look at what's available?  There will also be local mental health teams near you which you can refer yourself to, even if it's just for a few appointments to talk to someone if you're feeling down to get plenty off of your chest.

 

Don't be scared to talk.  Don't be scared that people will judge you - they won't.  We all feel stressed, anxious and sad at times - some people just handle it better than others.  If you need a bit of extra support to get through it, then that's okay.
