This week is Mental Health Awareness Week.
MYTH: Mental health only relates to if you have a mental health disorder or disease.
FACT: We ALL have mental health. This difference is whether we have good mental health or poor mental health

The same way we exercise to keep our bodies healthy, we need to take care of our mind when we realise its stepping into the realm of poor mental health.

Exam season is a time when many of us have poor mental health because of the pressure and workload.
Here are some top tips for caring for your mental health during exam season:
- Speak to someone you trust (a friend, family member, therapist) about how you are feeling. Don't suffer in silence
- Keep active. Exercise releases the body's happy pill - endorphins
- Eat Well!
- Take a break from everything.

Mental Health Awareness Week. And feeling aware of my poor mental health!
Hi there Little Popcorns

I'm so sorry about your poor mental health. I am however glad you've recognised it, as so many people don't. Because I am not a mental health professional, if you're feeling like you're unable to cope, please see one.

I do have some other tips that may help, which I've come across in a book I'm reading now called The Miracle Morning:
1. write 5 things that you're grateful for. However small or however big; gratitude is one of the things that, despite your current situation, makes the brain feel good.

2. writing in general. Sometimes we keep our worries in your brain overloading the poor thing. Its good to release it on paper and then you can tear or burn the paper.

3. visualisation. Easier said than done when you're suffering with poor mental health, but personally speaking, it has gotten me through alot of anxiety episodes.

I hope that you are able to use the tips ✨😊
As I said earlier, I am not a mental health professional, so if you are unable to cope, please see one. There are mental health charities that have free walkins and would be better abled to assist.

You know what each to their own! So glad you found something that makes you happy (also giving you extra energy is a plus!) thank you for sharing your own tip
