Tuesday 10 October, marks World Mental Health Day, which hopes to raise awareness about mental health issues and combat social stigma.
This year’s theme is #HelloYellow, to wear something yellow, to stand out and create a brighter future for young people’s mental health.
We’’ll be celebrating by wearing yellow so join us to stand out and show up for mental health awareness.
So, are you saying #HelloYellow this World Mental Health Day?
Self-Care and Wellbeing is Important!
Life can be pretty stressful, and finding a job, planning your career, or thinking about your future can make it even more overwhelming.
So many things can affect your mental health, but there are ways to manage it – it’s about finding the right tools and techniques for you! Strategies that help manage my mental health may not work for you, and vice versa.
At Careers Worcs, we can support you with finding the right techniques and resources to improve your overall wellbeing.
It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget about taking care of our mental wellbeing. World Mental Health Day serves as a gentle reminder to prioritise our own mental health. Whether practising mindfulness, engaging in hobbies, exercising, or simply taking a break, investing time in activities that bring joy and relaxation can significantly improve your mental health.
Small steps toward self-care can have a profound impact on overall wellbeing!
Why not have a digital detox?
In today’s digital age, it’s so easy to get lost in the online world!
Whilst scrolling through social media and watching TikTok videos can be fun, spending hours scrolling may not be good for your mental health. Reconnecting with the real world can help reduce anxiety and improve overall wellbeing. Even if it’s only for a few hours, taking a break from screens and social media can really help with your mental health!
