Mental Health Awareness Week
It is currently Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. This years theme is KINDNESS - if you would like to take part in the 2020 Kindness Challenge CLICK HERE!
I have put together a selection of my favourite inspirational and motivational quotes which remind me to stay positive. Mental health is not something to be ashamed of - everyone needs an occasional reminder that it is okay to not be okay, but you've got this and you're going to get through whatever challenge life throws at you.
During this weird and scary time your mental health can be all over the place but remember this is normal. However, talking about your battles can make them a lot easier to fight. At the end of this post I am going to include links to some amazing mental health charities who want to talk to you and help make your mindset a happier place.
You can't start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last.
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
your limitation is only your imagination.
Be selective in your battles - sometimes peace is better than being right.
If the plan doesn't work, change the plan. never change the goal.
be stronger than your strongest excuse.
trust the timing of your life.
everything happens for a reason.
The comeback is always stronger than the setback.
The most wasted of days is one without laughter.
You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.
do something today that your future self will thank you for.
Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
Make your mental health a priority.
mental illness is not a personal failure.
it is okay not to be okay.
What is meant for you will always be for you, that is why you should relax.
I hope that these quotes made you feel more content and happy with whatever you are going through. It is important to remember that things happen for a reason, even if you do not yet know what that reason is, give it time.
Most importantly, BE KIND & TALK ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS. Mental Health is a 24/7 battle, therefore I urge you to talk to your friends, your family or maybe re-connect with someone from school or university that made you happy. Now we are allowed to meet up with one other person outside of your household, you could arrange to meet up, go on a walk and get talking. Prioritise your mental health.
Below are a just few of the charities whose priority is to help people suffering with mental health problems, no matter how big or small they may seem.
