Mental Health Awareness Week

18th May 2020

This week is Mental health awareness week. The theme is ‘Kindness Matters’. We would love to find out what you’ve been up to promote kindness, whether that be kindness to yourself or to others! Check out the following website for further support and ideas for #kindnessmatters.

You could also have a go at the Ethics daily tasks which are full of kindness ideas 🙂
We look forward to hearing about your stories of kindness!

Rock it and make it mindful this Monday 🎨 🖌 #kindnessmatters #mentalhealthawarenessweek2020

To spread kindness this Monday why not paint a rock with an encouraging message and leave it for someone to find on your daily walk. You might make all the difference to someone’s day!! 🌈🙂
Here’s some examples. We’d love to see yours. #rockstars #makeitmonday #mindfulnessmatters

Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you are doing, how your body is feeling and what is happening around you. When life gets busy, it's easy to become focussed on worrying thoughts and emotions. Mindfulness helps us to take a step back and focus on the present.
