GIVE YOURSELF A GIFT

Headtorch #Giveyourselfagift-12

Throughout the #Give Yourself A Gift Campaign we’ve highlighted why taking some time for ourselves every day is a priority – it strengthens our mental health and well-being, enabling us to engage fully with work and home-life.

It’s often the small stuff that brings the biggest returns, as we saw with the characters Chelsie, Maggie and Sandra.  They all tapped into the 5 ways of well-being – connecting, learning, staying active, noticing (being in the moment) and giving.  Here’s some of their top tips:

  • Eat a treat and have a chat
  • Listen to a colleague, family member or friend – it’s one of the most supportive things we can do
  • Go for a walk
  • Find the exercise that works for you – are you more of a yoga or a heads-shoulders-knees-and-toes person?
  • Take time to be absorbed in nature
  • Acknowledge what you’re grateful for – write it down
  • Read a book
  • Celebrate the small stuff
  • Listen to a favourite song
  • Pay someone a compliment

They’re not costly are they?  The cost comes when we don’t do them.  When we engage in the 5 ways of well-being, the returns can be massive.

The festive period is almost upon us, a time to reflect, refresh and re-energise.  Me, I’m hoping to master the art of the yo-yo, obviously after some ups and downs!  It should be a laugh and give me some peaceful, in-the-moment minutes every day.  A yo-yo can be a present after all, that helps us to stay – in the present.

How will you continue to Give Yourself A Gift every day over the holidays?  Let us know.

…and one more thing to look forward to, a specific gift for yourself in the new year, a free 1 hour webinar:

Confidence in Supportive Conversations, 13th January at noon.  Contact nick@headtorch.org to book.

Happy Festive and hope to see you there!

Give Monday a chance
What we think affects how we feel.  We think sad, we feel sad. With this in mind, who’s bright idea was it to name the third Monday of the month Blue Monday? It’s not helpful. Especially this year. It’s particularly unhelpful, when you realise that there’s no scientific evidence behind it being the most depressing […]

Couch to … what?
We might laugh … but it’s amazing how many people don’t move during the working day – especially now that many of us are staying at home. There’s no commute, no meetings to go to, no need to see a colleague three floors up, no workplace cafe to saunter along to.  Before the world changed, at least we all had […]
