We have more to give to others when we first look after ourselves.

Self care, kindness and love are necessities, not selfish, and not things we should feel guilty about.

What do you do for self nurture or kindness, and do you do it consistently enough?

What could be better?

Anyone else a serial people pleaser?!

“What will everyone think? Do they like me? Did I do the right thing? What if I’ve offended them? Do they think I’m good enough? Are they talking about me to other people?”... are just some of the thoughts I identify with as a people pleaser.

People pleasing is not good for my mental health so over the past few years I’ve been working on changing this trait. Some of my findings:

I trust my own intuition more - if something feels wrong then it generally is.

I don’t need to be liked by everyone - I certainly don’t like everyone.

I accept who I am, therefore what others think of me matters less.

If I act from a place of truth and the other is offended, then that’s their stuff, not mine.

I am allowed to feel angry.

If I do my best, then that is good enough, and there’s nothing else I can do.

The people who care are the ones who really matter and who will always be there.

Any other snippets of wisdom you can add?

This stuff really matters ❤️

Lots of people will have an opinion on your mental health and what you should do.... but the only thing that matters is your opinion.

What do YOU need? I had a real mental battle with myself at the peak of my anxiety, as I felt that taking medication was “weak” and giving in to it.

It wasn’t. It was the best thing I could have done to help myself. I was in such a place that I couldn’t think straight and was finding it hard to function. Medication gave me the clarity and calm space to work on myself. And what a relief that was.

If you need medication for your mental wellbeing, there is no shame in taking it.

Do what is right for your mental health. Do what you need to do, to keep yourself safe, supported and as well as you can.

And hold on until this wave settles... for it will ❤️#mentalhealth #anxiety #breakdown #selfcare #medication #antidepressants #yourlife #yourchoice #youmatter #occupationaltherapy #practicalmindset

As a mental health therapist, what can I do to help more on social media?

What helps you most when you need support?

Is it live/recorded snippets with wellbeing strategies?

Mental health insights from my personal experience? More around my story?

A Facebook group that we can chat on?

Motivational, calming and inspirational pictures and quotes?

Is there anything else I can offer around mental health and wellbeing?

Thank you 😊 #marketresearch #whatdoyouneed #mentalhealth #mentalwellbeing #onlinesupport #socialmedia #supportingyou #occupationaltherapy #practicalmindset

On mental health awareness week we should all take a moment to recognise the impact mental health can have on any one of us. No one is immune.

BUT.... imagine if, just every day of the year we noticed it, talked about it and made this conversation normal 🤔

Mental health is equally as important as physical health. This stuff really matters - let’s just talk about it. #mentalhealth #letstalkaboutit #itsokaynottobeokay #stigma #thismatters #weareallinthistogether #humanity #occupationaltherapy #practicalmindset #mentalhealthawarenessweek
