This Christmas don’t forget to make time for you and look after your mental health. If your someone who needs routine or to maintain some elements of your life to keep yourself in check then do just that keep up those strategies.
Don’t lose sight of what you normally would do in a normal week to balance out how you cope with all the juggling of day to day life.
Recognise when you feel yourself slipping a little and make it a priority to help yourself balance out again. Don’t leave it to get worse.
Make sure you have a moment to yourself for yourself. It’s good to process the day and anything on your mind and acknowledge those thoughts.This in hand will also help you to prevent from bottling it all up. Bottling things up can only lead at some point to an explosion. Explosion of emotion, fear, Self sabotage or feeling overwhelm because you haven’t allowed yourself time, time to process and think through your feelings and thoughts.
Remember it’s just as important to exercise your mind as it is your body.
Wishing your all a very Merry Mental health this Christmas and New Year.
