This week it’s mental health awareness week across the UK, and in a time where it’s especially important to look after yourself and others too, we thought it might be helpful to share our top tips that can promote wellbeing and good mental health at home.
Kindness is the theme this year. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity – It’s a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health which is now more important than ever. Inspired by this, the following explores our two top wellbeing practices…
Getting back to nature
Spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. Doing things like growing food or flowers, going for a daily stroll or being around animals can have lots of positive effects. If you’re unable to get out of the house or have friends or relatives who can’t, bring nature inside to you or them – here are a few ideas from our Head Gardener, Wendy:
Quite simply, whether you enjoy it inside or out, we believe that the quiet calm of nature can leave a quiet calm in your mind – Give it a try.
Being kind to yourself is a vital part of maintaining good health and a vibrant life. We are more resilient and more able to handle life’s stress when we are feeling our best both physically and emotionally and self-care days can really help with that. A massage, a soak in the bath or other forms of pampering can revitalise you inside and out. Our Head Therapist, Chloe talks about how taking time out to maintain your self-care has several benefits:
In addition to pampering yourself, more substantial forms of self-care involving healthy lifestyle choices are important, too. Consuming a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and being sure you get enough sleep are all important for long-term health and stress management as well.
If you’re finding things tough, try talking it out with someone and if you’re unable to do that, here’s some expert advice and practical tips to help you look after your mental health and wellbeing at home with ‘Every Mind Matters’ from the NHS.
Stay well, stay safe and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back to the Manor very soon.
