5 things to do when you’re having a bad mental health day #Health #Mentalhealth


This week, postnatal depression and anxiety support charity PANDAS Foundation are running an awareness week - #PNDA18. The theme of the week is Hope, stories and support will be shared all week to provide hope to all the mums struggling with their mental health that a happy life is something they can have again. I have written a piece for PANDAS that will be shared on their website tomorrow, until then, I thought I would share five little things we can all do on a bad mental health day. The cloud of depression can be heavy and all-encompassing but there are ways to ease the pressure and make it out through the fog, if even just for a little while.

5 things to do when you're having a bad mental health day

1. Get dressed - I know it's hard to get out of bed, I know it's hard to find an ounce of motivation to even brush your teeth or nibble some toast for breakfast but staying in your pyjamas all day won't make you feel better. Trust me, I love a pj day as much as the next mama but a pj day when you are feeling low can easily become a day full of no energy, no motivation and no zest for life at all. Get in the shower and get dressed, even if it's just into your most comfortable and slouchy clothes, just don't stay in bed all day. I know it can be hard, but you need to get up.
