MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Mental health and wellness is about maintaining a healthy and happy mind. It is important to note that it is not abnormal to feel unhappy, it is an emotion that we can learn from. There are things we can incorporate into our lives to improve our mental wellbeing and become more resilient and joyful. You will find articles in this section to help you on your mental wellness journey including topics such as:

GRATITUDE.

Remaining grateful for all that we have. Research has shown consistently that practising gratitude can help improve our mental wellbeing. Exercises such as writing three things you’re grateful for each day, counting your blessings or simply acknowledging the positives fully when they arise can be an easy and effective way of boosting your happiness and mental health. These things don’t have to be huge, they can be the flowers you saw on your way to work or the sunshine beating through the glass window of your car – even the small things we take for granted are things we should be grateful for.

CHANGE THE NARRATIVE YOU TELL YOURSELF.

Since birth, we have been filled with the stories, expectations and perceptions of others. These narratives have been stored in our subconscious and are influencing the way we see the world and ourselves. While some of these are helpful to survival, others can lead to a negative self-image, high fear, and low self-confidence. Luckily, we can change these narratives and thus change the way we see the world. To start changing these stories you have to identify them, unpick them and then replace them with your truth.

MEDITATION.

Taking time for yourself and focusing on the present moment has been shown to reduce feelings of stress and increase feelings of gratitude and happiness. Meditating for just 10 minutes every morning can make you feel more grounded and have a more productive day.

NOURISHMENT

The food we eat can change our life. Eating a balanced and nourishing diet can improve our mood and make us feel energised. While most people realise that certain foods are better for our health and wellness than others, in a world where there is so much conflicting information it’s difficult to determine what to eat. I follow a vegan diet through choice and a gluten-free diet due to medical reasons, and I believe that most people can thrive eating a plant-based diet. In this section of articles, you’ll learn which foods I find work for me and the latest science on which foods are going to help heal illnesses and allow you to thrive.
