Basic Mental Health


What does mental health mean?


It is a combination of both the physical and mental well-being of you as a whole unique and individual person.


We need to start by repairing you  first and then work towards your goals and aspirations.



Here is a list of 3 essential things your body and mind needs to function at an acceptable level to function.


1. Sleep - Is always important get as much as you can when you can, it doesnt have to be what is perceived as the "norm" but what suits you and your environment.


2. Excercise or Outdoors - Fresh Air is the best solution to clear the mind and guess what?  Its FREE,  no gym costs or being self-conscious because those fit gym instructors might be looking at your wobbly bits!


3. Food - We cannot all afford these super dooper - low cholesterol, no carbs fad diets - do the best you can with what you have - Water is important it re-hydrates the brain and body.  If you cant afford fresh, fruit and vegetables replace them with vitamins. Milk is also a great source of protein - mums you can get vitamins on your healthy start tokens! Check out the reduce and sell by date sections in your local supermarket too....


Sounds very basic right?  But we all fail due to our busy lives of family, work, socialising and education we sometimes neglect the basic things our bodies need to function.


Take time to down tools, computers, phones.Just because COVID 19 is a distant after thought does not mean we have to rush back to the rat race.
