#MondayMotivation: 5 Steps to Talking to Someone You Trsut

We all need someone to talk to sometimes.... don't we?      #MondayMotivation     Here's this week's Monday Motivation. Hope you like it! Feel free to share.   Talking to others about our problems, concerns, thoughts, feelings or about whatever is going on for us in life can be tricky at times. It can be hard to open up and have time to focus on ourselves.    However, your mental and emotional health is sooooooo important and deserves the same care as your physical health. The poster below gives some tips to help you move towards talking to someone about some of the thoughts, feelings, concerns or experiences you may have.     ** We All Need Someone to Talk To Sometimes...Don't We? **    Sometimes we all need someone to talk to - about the big and the smaller things in life.

#FridayFacts: Myths About Emotions

  # FridayFacts: Myths About Emotions Every Friday we'll post some 'facts' and information about mental health. This week's facts focus on 'myths about feelings and emotions'.

There are numerous myths or misunderstandings about emotions that lead to people feeling they need to bottle everything up inside or not express themselves, but that can just lead to things building up inside of us over time. And what happens when something is held in and builds up and up and up? Eventually it explodes! This explosion can come in the form of tantrums, tears, anger or even violence, and unhelpful coping techniques. If you are hav

Monday Motivation: Make a Coping or Comfort Box

Monday Motivation Every Monday, we post some 'motivation': this could be a quote, picture, activity, story, articles etc. This week's 'motivation' involves making a 'Safe Box' or 'Comfort Box'. Read about how to do this below. Make yourself a 'Safe Box' or a 'Comfort Kit'. This can be very useful during times of distress, overwhelm or when we feel under threat in some way (e.g. anxious, confusing feelings etc.) What you put in your box/kit is up to you; however it's purpose is to provide you with a 'go to' a toolbox that you can reply on during times of distress or discomfort. You can choose from various things from the kit or box that will help you when you are feeling distressed, upset, unhappy, angry, sad or when your eating disorder thoughts, feelings and behaviours are overwhelming or difficult to control. Some of the things the box/kit might include are: * relaxation CDs; favourite music that you can dance to/cheers
