#MondayMotivation

This week's #MondayMotivation focuses on 'The Tricky Brain'. We often talk about this is therapy and counselling and it can really help clients to see that many of the problems they blame themselves for are not their fault: the old part of our brain hasn't kept up and presents us with all sort of problems.

Basically, the hardware and software in certain parts of our brain haven't updated, through no fault of our own, making things quite tricky for us, especially when it comes to anxiety, worry, panic and stress. So, parts of the brains operating system, built to help us many 1000s of year ago haven't updated, yet we still live out lives according to that old, outdated operating system.

If you don't update your phone or laptop, it starts causing problems over time, right? Certain parts of the brain are the same. However, we can't reach into the brain and tinker about with those parts that haven't evolved so well, can we? No. But we can be aware of it and do something about it. This is where therapy, counselling, CBT and other talking therapies can really help. IT IS POSSIBLE to update this old operating system in other ways.

Hope you like the wee poster below. And if you need to get in touch for some support, the details are below. Take car.

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.


Moodles are little creative exercises you can do to become aware of feelings, reduce stress or anxiety, help you relax or feel better and much more.

Some people have a wee bit more time on their hands at the moment (I wish I did!), so engaging in some creative activites for mental health can really improve wellbeing and stress at the moment.

I've provided 4 Moodles to try below. 

Give one or more of these a go and see how you get on... it might even help you feel a wee bit better.

Take care and have a good day, Alexandra
