Be kind to your mind this World Mental Health Day

There are small things we can all do to help be kind to our mind and these can make a big difference to how we feel.


That’s why a new Better Health – Every Mind Matters campaign is being launched, helping us find those little things we can all do to look after our mental health and showing us how they can add up to make a big difference; helping us to lead happier, healthier lives and cope with life’s challenges. Making time for your mental wellbeing is important – and embedding these little things as part of your routine can help you feel better and more in control


These little things can include:

    • Getting physically active – like taking a walk
    • Managing your thoughts and feelings with the help of CBT
    • Talking to someone you trust
    • Getting the most from your sleep – like avoiding screen-time an hour before bed or getting out of bed and doing something simple until you feel tired again
    • Getting closer to nature
    • Planning something nice to look forward to
