πŸŽ‰ GOOD LUCK GCSE FOLK! πŸŽ‰

Here are some tips for you to keep calm and focused during this time πŸ’œ

Eating a balanced diet
- good nutrition is important to maintain good energy levels and feeling well.

Sleep
- most teens/young people need between 8-10 hours! Allow yourself a good half hour to wind down before bed to encourage good sleep too.

Move your body!
- exercise can help boost your energy levels. It doesn't matter what it is. Walking, cycling, and swimming are all good. Activities like this with friends are even better to get even more feel-good brain chemicals πŸ₯°

Take each day as it comes πŸ’œ

Breathe.

You've got this πŸ’ͺ

The theme for this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek is loneliness.

The BIG myth about loneliness is that those people in a relationship/partnership/marriage can't possibly be lonely.

Truth is: YOU CAN!

You can be lonely and not be physically alone.

You may have different interests, or they may be emotionally distant.

There are different dimensions to loneliness.

Physical proximity isn't the only factor when it comes to our relationships.

There's emotional closeness too.

Our brains are hardwired to want good connections with others.

We all know that life can get in the way, we work, go home, cook dinner, watch tv, you tired/fatigued, perhaps you have children to deal with, conditions and symptoms to manage, sleep, repeat!

It's important to make time for yourself, in your everyday life.

Think about that stress bucket.

When you feel good, you connect better with others, including partners, friends and family.

Online friends can be really good friends, they also count!

Any positive connection is going to give you a feel-good chemicals.

Are you part of an online positive and supportive community?

Feel free to share them in the comments πŸ₯°πŸ’œ

P.S - do you like the brain drawing I did? I feel pretty pleased with how it turned out πŸ§ πŸ’œ
